LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 81 

VI. Daily Proceedings 

A. MEETING SESSIONS 

First Day 
June 3, 1985 
First United Methodist Church 
Afternoon Session — 2:00 p.m. 

The Fifteenth Session of the Louisiana Annual Conference began with the 
Service of Word and Table at the First United Methodist Church of 
Shreveport, June 3, 1985. 

The Celebrant was Bishop Walter L. Underwood, the Liturgist was Dr. 
Theo S. Standley, the Preacher was Rev. Donald R. Avery. The Roll Of 
Remembrance was read by Dr. Harvey G. Williamson, Conference Secretary. 
Those memorialized are listed in Section X of the Journal. Special music 
was provided by the Centenary College Alumni Choir. 

Following this Memorial and Holy Communion Service Bishop Walter L. 
Underwood called the business session of the Louisiana Annual Conference to 
order. His opening remarks were words of appreciation; first, to Donald 
Avery for the Memorial sermon, next to each of the participants in the 
Commemoration Service, and then to Cheesie Voran for his excellent leader- 
ship of the Centenary College Alumni Choir. Bishop Underwood then gave 
special recognition to Dr. James T. Harris for attending his sixtieth 
straight session of the Louisiana Annual Conference. 

WORDS OF WELCOME: Bishop Underwood presented Dr. John Fellers, host 
pastor of the First United Methodist Church, who brought greetings to the 
Conference and welcomed the delegates to First Church. The host District 
Superintendent of the Shreveport District, Dr. Odell Simmons, was presented 
and brought greetings of welcome to the Conference. At this point the Bishop 
introduced Kent Kilbourne as the music leader for the Conference and ex- 
pressed appreciation to him and the pianist, Marie Durham, who will be at 
the piano during the Conference. Following these remarks the Conference 
joined in the singing of the hymn ' 'And Are We Yet Alive'', after which 
Bishop Underwood led in prayer. At this time Bishop Underwood asked Dr. Tom 
Matheny to come forward and sit on the platform for the duration of the 
Conference. Bishop Underwood presented Dr. Harvey G. Williamson as the 
Secretary of the Conference who was approved to continue for the quadren- 
nium. Dr. Williamson then nominated Rev. Lael Jones, Rev. Charles 
Humphreys, Rev. Gerald Richardson, Rev. Roger Lathan, Rev. Jack Winegeart 
and Rev. David Fortuna as Assistant Secretaries. They were elected. Bishop 
Underwood recognized Dr. Douglas McGuire as the Dean of the Cabinet for a 
motion. Dr. McGuire moved that the Conference send greetings to Bishop J. 
Woodrow Hearn as he presides over his first session of the Nebraska Con- 
ference beginning on June 4. The motion carried. 

Bishop Underwood recognized Rev. Don Hall for the report of the Commit- 
tee on Nominations. Rev. Hall asked in his report that the lower floor of 
First United Methodist Church be set as the Bar of the Conference. Rev. 
John Winn was recognized by the Bishop, and he asked that the Bar of the 
Conference be extended to the balcony and to the choir loft, which was 
approved. Rev. Hall continued by asking that the secretaries pass out the 
printed report of the Committee on Nominations. Rev. Don Hall took time to 
make the delegates aware of the changes on the printed sheet of nominations 
and these were so noted. The Bishop recognized Rev. Julius Jefferson of the 



82 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Peck United Methodist Church in New Orleans, who rose to express concern 
about the report of the Nominations Committee. Following this, the vote on 
the Nominations Committee report was called for and approved by the 
Conference. 

Proposed Constitutional Amendments: Bishop Underwood gave instructions 
for voting on the proposed Constitutional Amendments and instructed that 
each ballot should have the numbers 1, 2, 3, upon them and after each of 
the three proposed amendments that a ''yes 11 or ''no'' should be inserted. 
Dr. Harvey Williamson, Secretary of the Conference, read the first, second 
and third amendment, after which the vote was taken. The ballots were sealed 
until Tuesday morning at which time the tally was be announced to the Con- 
ference. Dr. Williamson announced the services for each evening and called 
attention to some of the special activities. He reminded all that a new 
feature had been added for both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings in the form 
of a special worship service at 11:30 with Bishop W. Kenneth Goodson 
preaching. 

Concluding the afternoon session was the State of the Church Address 
given by Bishop Walter L. Underwood. The benediction was then pronounced by 
Bishop Underwood for the close of the afternoon session.

the most students at Centenary College this past year. They were awarded to 
the small, middle and large size churches. The smallest church award went 
to Love Chapel of Haughton, with Rupert D. Coles, Pastor. The middle size 
church award was given to the Springhill United Methodist Church, Charles

been examined and were in proper order. The report was accepted. 

CONFERENCE COUNCIL ON MINISTRIES Bishop Underwood explained the way in 
which the Report of the Council on Ministries would be received. The 
Council on Ministries is an umbrella of several boards, committees, commis- 
sions and agencies and on this day we would be hearing five of these re- 
ports. Dr. Charles Simmons was presented as the Chairperson of the 
Conference Council on Ministries, who recognized the work of Dr. Harvey 
Williamson, Dr. John Braden, Rev. Roger La than, Rev. Pat Culligan and Dr. 
Sam Walker. Dr. Simmons then presented Dr. Alton Hancock, who gave the 
Archives and History Report. 

Dr. Hancock suggested that each district should elect a district 
historian. He reminded the Conference that the Louisiana Conference history 
was being written by Dr. Walter Vernon. Dr. Vernon was then presented to 
the Conference. The Archives and History Report was concluded with a pre- 
sentation of slides of historical interest of Louisiana Methodism showing 
all of those Methodist churches where Louisiana Methodist historical markers 
had been placed. 

The second report of the Conference Council on Ministries was that of 
the Commission on Christian Unity and Interreligious Concerns. This report 
was presented by Dr. Lonnie Sibley. He called attention to the Pre- 
Conference Report and noted that the Commissions *s report found on page 9. 

Church and Society was report no. 3 of the Conference Council on 
Ministries and was presented by Dr. DeWitt Ginn. Dr. Ginn presented the 
Rev. Mickey Stringfield, who announced that the Conference Board of Church 
and Society and the Louisiana Interchurch Conference were co-sponsoring a 
workshop in Baton Rouge at First Church on October 19, 1985. The workshop 
is entitled, ''How To Make a Difference; Influencing Community Leaders and 
Social Structures.'' Two keynote speakers for the workshop will be Dr. Tex 
Samples of the St. Paul School of Theology, Kansas City and Dr. George Ogle, 



84 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



United Methodist Church General Board of Church and Society, Dr. Ginn then 
introduced Rev. Willis Dear, who presented an addendum to the report. This 
was a paper with regard to the support of public schools in three ways: 
First, through VIP's (Volunteers in Public School); second, through the 
' 'Adopt-a-School' ' program; third, through organization of interested 
persons in the community. Rev. Dear recommended that churches adopt p-apers 
of this nature. 

Report No. 4 of the Conference Council on Ministries was that of the 
Commission on the Status and Role of Women, presented by the chairperson, 
Mrs. Betty Rowell. A trilogy was presented by three persons, Linda Sheppard 
from the Shreveport district, Barbara Smith Duke from the Alexandria dis- 
trict and John Sadler from the Baton Rouge/Lafayette district. Mrs. Rowell 
then referred to page 17 of the Pre-Conference Report and urged that 
churches should follow the election of an officer to the position of the 
Status of Role and Women as the Discipline directs. 

Report No. 5 of the Conference Council on Ministries was that of the 
Board of Discipleship, given by Dr. H. A. Harrington, who lifted up several 
matters of importance: First, the emphasis upon Evangelism found on page 18 
of the Pre-Conference Report; second, the 1986 Pastor's School which will 
emphasize evangelism; and third, emphasis on worship and two workshops. In 
June of this year the Holy Spirit Conference, known as ' 'Dunamis '85' ' will 
take place at Centenary College. In addition, there will be a Cursillo event 
held in Mississippi. 

Rev. J. Henry Bowdon, Jr., Conference Scouting Coordinator, \ms intro- 
duced. Rev. Bowdon presented to the Conference for recognition members of 
Troop 5 and Troop 118, in addition to giving recognition to District Coordi- 
nators of Scouting, Conference Committee on Youth Service Agents, all adults 
who are working in scouting, all youth involved in scourting and all persons 
who had ever been associated with scouting. The first annual Bishop's Award 
of ''Excellency in Scouting'' was then presented to Troop 118 of the Camphor 
Memorial United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge and Troop 5 of the First 
United Methodist Church of Lake Charles. Bishop Underwood presented these 
awards to the Scoutmaster and senior patrol leaders of each group. The Rev. 
Alonzo Campbell rose for the privilege of wanting to recognize certain scout 
leaders from the Newman United Methodist Church of Alexandria. 

Dr. Harrington then presented Rev. Carole Cotton-Winn, who Introduced 
to the Conference a new book, ''A Children's Book For Communion,'' authored 
by Barbara Garcia, and published by Discipleship Resources for $2.50. She 
recommended it to be made a part of the worship life of every church. Dr. 
Simmons then moved for the adoption of the report at which time some discus- 
sion followed. Rev. Julius Jefferson questioned the absence of black 
leaders in ''Dunamis '85''. Dr. Harrington explained that capable black 
leadership had been contacted, namely, Bishop Leontine Kelly but she was 
unable to participate. The motion to amend the report was presented by the 
Rev. Van Dickens. Bishop Underwood ruled that because of the length of the 
motion that it must be printed and presented to the Conference in a printed 
fashion before action could be taken. Mrs. Jack Cochran, a delegate from 
the David Haas Memorial Church in Bunkie, rose to ask if the section on page 
11 at the bottom of the Central America report should not be deleted in 
regards to the support that the United Methodist Church gives to the harbor- 
ing of illegal aliens. This was also referred back to committee for study 
and to report later. With the exception of these two items the report was 
adopted in its entirety. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 85 



PERSONAL COURTESIES: Bishop Underwood recognized Dr. Odell Simmons, 
Shreveport District Superintendent, for personal courtesies. Dr. Simmons 
introduced the First Lady of Louisiana Methodism, Mrs. Walter Underwood. At 
the same time Bishop Goodson's wife was recognized by the Conference. In 
addition, Rev. Don Underwood and his wife were introduced to the assembled 
delegates. 

Dr. Harvey G. Williamson presented two items of interest. He read 
greetings that had been received from the Texas Annual Conference presided 
over by Bishop Ben Oliphant, and the Western North Carolina Conference pre- 
sided over by the newly-elected Bishop L. Bevill Jones. Other announcements 
were made from the floor pertaining to the activities of the Conference. 
Bishop Underwood then announced the results from the balloting on the pro- 
posed amendments: Proposed Amendment No. 1, 552 for, 3 against, 2 absten- 
tions; Proposal No. 2, 553 for, 5 against, 1 abstention; Proposal No. 3, 465 
for, 94 against, 6 abstentions. 

A recess was called by Bishop Underwood. 

PERIOD OF SONGS: Following recess the Conference was called to order as 
Rev. Kent Kilbourne led a song fest. 

The Secretary of the Conference, Dr. Harvey Williamson, reminded every- 
one that there would be an Executive Session at 2:00 p.m. for all clergy in 
full connection. 

Rev. Don Hall, Secretary of the Cabinet, made a motion that greetings 
be sent to Bishop and Mrs. W. T. Handy, Bishop and Mrs. Ben Oliphant, Bishop 
and Mrs. Crutchfield, Bishop and Mrs. Paul Galloway, Mrs. Kenneth Shamblin, 
Mrs. Aubrey Walton and Mrs. Paul Martin. He also asked that letters be sent 
to others who were absent because of illness: Rev. D. R. Deen, Rev. C. J. 
T. Gotten, Mrs. Margaret Snelling, Rev. Don Cottrill and Mrs. Cathy Baker, 
as well as greetings to other persons as the Superintendents might 
recommend . 

PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: Rev. Cleburne Quaid rose for a matter of personal 
privilege and presented to Bishop Walter Underwood a hand-carved duck, 
representing his hobby. 

CONFERENCE TREASURER AND STATISTICIAN: Dr. Jimmie Caraway came forward 
to present the Report of the Conference Treasurer and Statistician. He 
called attention to the report on pages 78 and 79 of the Pre-Conference 
Reports. He began his report by paraphrasing the scripture ' '. . .that the 
words and numbers of my mouth be acceptable unto Thee, God.'' He went on 
to report that numbers do tell the story of Louisiana Methodism in a strong 
and powerful way, noting that we are a leader among the 74 annual 
conferences of this country. He pointed out that the Sunday School 
statistics show 287 new classes since Bishop Underwood came to our Con- 
ference. The statistics also indicate that we have $275 million in building 
and property assets for the churches in Louisiana. He informed the 
delegates that over 400 churches had paid 100% on their apportionments. 
This is the sixth year in which 100% has been paid on World Service. For 
the first five months of 1985, over $2 million has been sent to the Con- 
ference office. Growing in Christian Stewardship is our goal. The Bishop 
responded with much appreciation for the fine work of Dr. Caraway. 



86 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



ANNOUNCEMENTS: Bishop Underwood then announced two honors that had 
come to Dr. Tom Matheny. Dr. Matheny will attend the Nebraska Conference 
where he will preach the Ordination Service, as well as be guest speaker for 
the Western New York Annual Conference. Then Bishop Underwood expressed 
appreciation to the press for their coverage of the Conference and 
especially with reference to two outstanding journalists in Shreveport , 
Nancy Morris and Cathy Coffee. 

COUNCIL ON FINANCE AND ADMINISTRATION: The Council on Finance and 
Administration Report was presented by Mr. Welton Brumfield. Referring to 
Report No. 1 of the Pre-Conference Reports, he lifted up the following items 
of concern: 1) the observance of special offerings, 2) the need for every 
church to pay apportionments in full, 3) the need for all pastors to follow 
Item 8 regarding their utilities and travel, and 4) the necessity for all 
pastors to give close, careful documentation of travel expense for IRS 
regarding Item 10. He then announced the new Certified Public Accountant 
(CPA) for our Conference is Reginald H. Pulliam. Mr. Brumfield then moved 
to Report No. 2, of CFA directing the Conference attention to page 3, 
Section 3 the Conference General Budget. He explained the figures dealing 
with this report and the increases that were proposed for 1986. Mr. 
Brumfield pointed out two items of concern to the Conference on page 4. 
Item No. 8 uses the same formula for the salary of District Superintendents 
that is presently being used, except instead of using the prior year we will 
use the current year. The second item he called attention to was on page 5 
regarding travel and expenses for boards, agencies and committees which 
states that the maximum per diem for lodging and meals shall be $50.00. Two 
corrections were then mentioned on page 5 under Item 10. Delete the sentence 
''a list of all investments and the returns therefrom shall be submitted 
annually'' (Paragraph 708). The second deletion recommended was on page 6, 
Item 12, in the middle part of the paragraph. The words ''. . .to World 
Service and to Wesley Foundaion the previous year,'' should be deleted, as 
well as the same words in the next to the last line of Item 12. Mr. 
Brumfield then presented an additional item, which was printed and passed 
out to the Conference and becomes No. 14 of the report. It reads as fol- 
lows: ''The Council recommends the continuation of the present system of 
apportionments on the decimal plan (see Conference Rules). The council 
recommends that the Conference authorize an exception to Conference Rule No. 
1 for churches with over a 10% increase in apportionments or with a reduc- 
tion in apportionments from the previous year. The decimal for churches at 
each extreme may be adjusted by the Director of Financial Affairs, with the 
concurrence of the District Superintendents and the Executive Committee of 
C.F.A., so that there will not be an undue burden on any church in the 
Conference. ' ' 

Rev. Jack O'Dell of the Faith United Methodist Church in West Monroe 
objected to this addition on the basis that it violated the Conference Rules 
as printed in the Journal on page 218. Dr. Jimmie Caraway responded that 
we had done this during the Pension Crusade. He further stated that the 
Rules Committee was aware of this request. Rev. George Calvin of the Camphor 
Memorial United Methodist Church, Baton Rouge moved that the rules be sus- 
pended for application of this addition No. 14, to the report. After being 
duly seconded, Rev. Donald Avery of the Neely-Hartzell Charge, Baton Rouge, 
spoke for the motion. Bishop Underwood stated that according to Roberts 
Rules of Order the rules could be suspended by a two thirds vote of the 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 87 



Conference. He then called for a voice vote, and after receiving an unclear 
count, he called for a hand vote. The motion prevailed and the rules were 
suspended for Item No. 14. Dr. Clyde Frazier of the Rayne Memorial United 
Methodist Church, New Orleans, raised a question regarding funding as 
printed on page 2, the funding item of $42,000 from the Pension Fund to the 
Louisiana Conference Administration Fund. He then moved that the Conference 
consider another way of funding, and by common consent the Conference 
agreed to refer this back to CFA. There being no further discussion, the 
complete report was adopted. 

Dr. Alfred Norris, a trustee of the Methodist Publishing House, brought 
greetings and then recognized three persons for their contributions of 
articles published in various Methodist periodicals. They were: Dr. Don 
Elmer, Mrs. Doris Sheppard and Mr. Tom Burton. Dr. Norris then introduced 
Mr. Bill Turner, Cokesbury representative, who invited everyone to look at 
the Bookstore display and called special attention to Bishop Walter L. 
Underwood's book ''The Contemporary Twelve.'' Mr. Turner then stated that 
the Publishing House would make donations of hymnals and church school 
materials for one year to newly-organized churches in Methodism. He called 
attention to the computer software that the Methodist church now has avail- 
able churches. Dr. Norris returned to the platform to make a presentation 
from the Publishing House to Bishop Underwood in the amount of $15,011.50 
for our Conference's pro rata share of the profits for the 1984 year. 
Bishop Underwood then presented Dr. Norris as the newly elected President of 
Gammon Theological Seminary. Before leaving the platform the retiring 
President of Gammon, Dr. Major Jones, was introduced to the Conference to 
bring words of greeting. 

The preaching service began at 11:30 a.m. with Rev. Kent Kilbourne 
leading the singing of ''All Hail The Power Of Jesus Name.'' Dr. Alan 
Einsel led in prayer, followed with a solo by Kent Kilbourne ''The Prayer of

pianist. Bishop Underwood then introduced the guest preacher, Bishop W.

churches had lost membership. To help answer these problems he presented 
some answers through the various committees of the Board of Global 
Ministries.

to'' book called ''VIM'' to Bishop Underwood. He next introduced Mr. Tom

convened by the outgoing Council chairperson for the purpose of organizing 
and electing officers. The Council shall have a chairperson, vice chairper- 
son, and recording secretary elected from the membership of the Council and 
a treasurer, who shall be the Conference Director of Financial Affairs. 
Officers shall be elected for terms of 4 years and shall continue until 
their successors are duly elected.'' The substitute motion passed. The 



96 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



amended Section III was then approved. In Section IV, Petitions , Rev. Tira 
Lawson offered the following amendment for Section IV. B. On page 88, under 
IV. B delete the first sentence and substitute ' 'Any resolutions proposed by 
an individual or group other than a Conference Agency shall be presented to 
the Committee at least 24 hours before consideration by the Annual Con- 
ference.' ' From the second sentence delete ''by them when they meet on the 
opening day of the Conference.'' The amendment was defeated and the section 
was then approved as it appears on page 88 of the Pre-Conf erence Report. 
Section V, Miscelleanous , was presented and was approved as printed on page 
88. Section 6, Other Requests for Changes, was presented and approved by 
the Conference. Section VI, page 216, Article VI, No. 7, D.S. , a request 
from the Conference Council on Finance and Administration, Rev. Larry O'Dell 
asked for clarification from Mr. Welton Brumfield. Mr. Brumfield said that 
the 1984 salaries of the top 20 churches were used to compute the District 
Superintendent's 1985 salaries, while in 1986 we will use the January, 1986 
salary schedule. Dr. Tracy Arnold suggested that this be added in the 
sentence ''set no later than January 20th.'' The chairperson accepted the 
change so that the section would read ''shall not be greater than the 
average base salary for the current year set no later than January 20th paid 
to the 20 highest paid pastors of charges.'' The section was approved. Rev. 
Jack O'Dell moved for reconsideration of the Report of the Rules Committee. 
The motion failed.

brought in a nonconcurrence from the committee for two items that were to be 
brought to the Conference for consideration. They were as follows: 

(1) Rev. Van Dickens had presented to the Church and Society the following 
addendum regarding Central America, stating ''the Louisiana Annual Con- 
ference, in agreement with the General Board of Church and Society, strongly 
encourages the President and Congress of the United States to deny support 
to the Contra forces in Nicaragua who seek to overthrow the established 
government through torture, violence and death, and support the Contadora 
Peace Initiatives of Panama, Venezuela, Columbia, and Mexico. 

The Louisiana Annual Conference also agrees, upon recommendation of the 
General Board of Church and Society, to establish a covenant relationship 
through a local church base community in Nicaragua with whom we will share 
delegates for the purpose of knowing first-hand the terrible travesty of 
justice inflicted on brothers and sisters in the faith.'' 

(2) The second consideration of the committee on which they also voted 
nonconcurrence, was listed in the Pre-Conf erence Report on page 11. Mrs. 
Winona Cochran from the David Haas Memorial United Methodist Church in 
Bunkie had asked for the deletion of the lines under Central America, page 
11, which began at the end of the fifth sentence, reading as follows: ''Some 
churches in the United States for several years have provided sanctuary for 
many who come. In recent months pastors of these congregations, which 
include at least two United Methodist Churches, have been charged with 
violating laws against the United States Government by keeping illegal 
aliens. The Louisiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church 
stands beside those pastors and the congregations of those churches who 
provide sanctuary for these political refugees.'' 

The Board of Church and Society presented the matter of deletion. Rev. 

Marta Sanfiel, New Orleans-Slidell District, spoke for nonconcurrence, H. S. 

Bowman, of the Horseshoe Drive United Methodist Church in Alexandria, spoke 

for concurrence. The vote was taken and they voted nonconcurrence. The 
deletion was not allowed. The report would remain the same. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 97 



An addendum to the report was presented. Rev. Van Dickens spoke for 
the concurrence of the addendum. Rev. Paul Durbin spoke against the concur- 
rence. Mr. George Hill of the Jefferson United Methodist Church, Baton 
Rouge spoke for nonconcurrence. Mr. Jay Caraway amended the addendum to 
delete in the fourth line * ' to seek to overthrow the established government 
through torture, violence and death. ' ' That phrase was to be deleted. Marta 
Sanfiel spoke for the amendment. Rev. Terry Willis spoke against the amend- 
ment. A motion was then presented by Rev. John Guyre from Indian Bayou 
Church to divide the question. Motion to divide the question was carried. 
Going back to the first paragraph, the Conference voted approval of the 
first paragraph as amended. The Conference returned to vote on the Board's 
recommendation of nonconcurrence gf the first paragraph. Nonconcurrence 
passed and the paragraph was not accepted. The vote on nonconcurrence of 
this paragraph two failed and the paragraph was accepted. This paragraph is 
to be added at the end of the report on page 12 of the Pre-Conf erence 
Report. Rev. Paul Durbin introduced a motion for a new paragraph to be added 
following the final paragraph which would read; ' 'The Louisiana Annual 
Conference also agrees to support the legal government of El Salvador and 
establish a covenant relationship with the church in that country. ' ' The 
motion passed and then the amended report was adopted. 

MATTER OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: Rev. Conrad Edwards asked for a Matter 
of Personal Privilege, at which time he commended Bishop Underwood for his 
patience and expertise in guiding the delegates through the Conference 
business. 

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Announcements were then made by the Conference 
Secretary, Dr. Harvey G. Williamson, who also read greetings from the 
office of the Conference Secretary of the North Carolina Conference and from 
Raymond and Shirley DeLaughter, who were unable to attend Conference. 

The Benediction was offered by Dr. Tom Matheny.

Prior to the Service of Ordination a Bach Commemorative Organ Recital 
was presented by Dr. Herman D. Taylor, University Organist, Professor of 
Music at Dillard University. 

The Service of Ordination for the Louisiana Annual Conference was held

by Bishop Goodson and various District Superintendents. The passing of the 
''mantle of ministry'' to the new ordinands with the presentation of new 



98 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



stoles was participated in by various ministers selected for this particular 
occasion by the Board of Ordained Ministry. 

Following the Service of Ordination a reception was held in Bain Hall 
honoring the Deacons and Elders. 



Fourth Day 
Thursday, June 6, 1985 
Physical Education Center - Centenary College 
Morning Session - 8:30 a.m. 

The morning session was opened with the singing of ' 'Blessed 
Assurance' ' led by Rev. Kent Kilbourne. The Worship Service was under the 
direction of Rev. John Williams and Rev. Marie Williams. John was the 
Liturgist and Marie was the Preacher for the devotional period. 

At the conclusion of the service Bishop Underwood opened the morning 
session by calling for the report of the Journal Committee. 

REPORT OF THE JOURNAL COMMITTEE: This report was given by Sara Fugler. 
The report of the Journal Committee was accepted by the Conference. 

BOARD OF TRUSTEES: The report was given by Dr. Tom Matheny. Dr. 
Matheny stated that the Trustees had handled a number of transactions re- 
garding church property throughout the Conference, which included the 
abandonment of several pieces of property in order that the land might be 
turned over to individuals or churches. In conclusion Dr. Matheny stated 
that the Trustees have endorsed the report of the Episcopal Residence Com- 
mittee, which will be given at a later time. Dr. Matheny then moved that 
the appropriate resolutions and property changes be included in the Journal. 
As a final item he asked the approval of the new officers for the Board of 
Trustees. They are: President, Dr. Tom Matheny; Vice President, Dr. Nancy 
Carruth; and Secretary-Treasurer Rev. Ed Pickens. Bishop Underwood called 
for a vote and the report was approved. 

COMMITTEE ON THE EPISCOPACY: The report was given by Dr. Clyde Frazier. 
It appears on page 68 of the Pre-Conf erence Report, and commenting on this 
report Dr. Frazier said that a number of things have changed this year, 
since Bishop Underwood has been with us for the betterment of our 
Conference. Under his leadership new churches and new Sunday School classes 
have been organized, and a renewed interest has taken place in the Outreach 
Evangelism of our church. He thanked the Bishop for his efforts in this 
direction. In conclusion, Dr. Frazier asked the Bishop to come forward for 
the presentation of a framed print from the Foundation of Evangelism, 
''Offer Them Christ.'' Bishop Underwood received the print with much ap- 
preciation. Bishop Underwood then called for a vote of acceptance on the 
report. At the conclusion Bishop Underwood made the statement to the Con- 
ference that he is accountable to the Committee on the Episcopacy of this 
Conference. 

LOUISIANA INTERCHURCH CONFERENCE: This report was given by Rev. James 
Stovall. The report appears on page 72 of the Pre-Conf erence Report. In 
remarks concerning the report Rev. Stovall reminded the Conference that they 
are now observing the Fifteenth Anniversary of the Interchurch Conference 
which is made up of 31 church groups in our state. He asked that we con- 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 99 



tinue to give support to this organization through our ecumenical endeavors. 
The report was received with appreciation from the Conference. 

At this point the agenda of the Conference was interrupted as Bishop 
Underwood called for a special presentation of the Softball Tournament 
awards. Dr. Charles Simmons came forward for the presentation. In this 
report Dr. Simmons emphasized that this softball tournament was held for two 
purposes: first, to provide fellowship for our people across district lines 

and, second, to lift up in a new way extra ministries of the Conference 

Council On Ministries. Those churches receiving trophies included: Henning 
United Methodist Church, Sulphur, La.; Broadmoor United Methodist Church, 
Shreveport; First United Methodist Church, Slidell. At the conclusion Mr. 
Matt Kawasaki presented the Bishop a check for $2,000. At the conclusion of 
this report Bishop Underwood presented Dr. Dale Dunlap, Dean of St. Paul 
School of Theology, to bring greetings to the Conference. 

GREETINGS: Dr. Dunlap expressed appreciation for the support given by 
the Louisiana Conference and stated that St. Paul is now beginning to get 
some endowed chairs. 

Following this Bishop Underwood introduced W. D. Strickland of the 
United Methodist Reporter Staff, who has been a personal friend of his for 
many years. Mr. Strickland gave remarks to the Conference concerning the 
Louisiana Methodist and encouraged our people to support this publication. 

Following this Bishop Underwood introduced Dr. Bill Blakely, newly 
elected Dean of the Cabinet, and recognized his receiving an honorary 
Doctorate Degree from Centenary College in May. Bishop Underwood then 
presented Dr. Harvey G. Williamson and asked him to introduce the Council on 
Ministries staff who were assisting with Annual Conference. Dr. Williamson 
introduced first, Mrs. Merritt Cortello, who is in the office of Financial 
Affairs, secondly, Mrs. Carolyn Powell, who is in Dr. Williamson's office 
and is Director of the Conference Audio Visual Library and finally, Mrs. 
Maureen Dartez, Bishop Underwood's secretary. Bishop Underwood then intro- 
duced Claiborne Sharp, who has been handling the Public Address System for 
this Conference and in turn introduced Grayson Watson, who has been taping 
the sessions. 

WORDS OF APPRECIATION: Bishop Underwood then gave a personal word of 
appreciation to the Conference secretaries, who had not only worked through 
the Conference but would have to work after hours in order that the minutes 
could be perfected. Those recognized were: Rev. Lael Jones, Rev. Charles 
Humphreys, Rev. Gerald Richardson, Rev. Roger Lathan, Rev. Jack Winegeart 
and Rev. David Fortuna. Bishop Underwood then gave words of appreciation to 
Marie Durham, the pianist, whom he said was perhaps the most outstanding 
pianist in the nation for this kind of service. He then praised Kent 
Kilbourne, the song leader, who had put together the kind of singing ex- 
perience he had desired. Bishop Underwood praised Kay Madden for the months 
of preparation and planning to make the Conference at Centenary College such 
an outstanding and memorable occasion. 

Bishop Underwood presented Bishop W. Kenneth Goodson to the Conference 
and expressed deep appreciation for his inspiring messages and friendship 
and the way in which he had been a blessing to our Conference. Bishop 



100 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Goodson expressed his deep appreciation and gratitude for the beautiful 
manner in which he had been received. 

Bishop Underwood then announced that Dr. Craddock of the Candler 
School of Theology at Emory University would be the Preacher for the 1986 
Annual Conference. 

i 

MATTER OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: A matter of personal privilege was 
granted Mrs. Amy Ward, who announced that Rev. Carole Cotton-Winn would be 
the Conference Preacher next week at the Holston Conference. 



Don Madden of Arcadia was given the floor by Bishop Underwood. He 
presented the following motion: '' Beginning next year the Conference con- 
sider having the preaching services videotaped and made available to the 
churches either by satellite of through the Conference tape library.' * The 
motion carried. 

MATTER OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: A matter of personal privilege was 
granted to Rev. Terry Willis from Arcadia. He announced that the District 
Superintendent of the Ruston District, Dr. Henry C. Blount, had published a 
book, ' 'Looking For Honey'' now in its third publication. The proceeds 
would be going to the Hunger Fund. At this time more than $1,000 has been 
given to the Hunger Fund. 

MATTER OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: A matter of personal privilege was 
granted to Rev. Larry Robertson of Clinton, who introduced a guest to our 
Conference, Rev. Gerry Eckert from the Wisconsin Conference. 

The Bishop then announced recess. 

Upon the return from recess the Rev. Kent Kilbourne led the Conference 
in the singing of ''Standing On The Promises.'' Bishop Underwood presented 
Mr. Hubert Blanchard, newly elected Conference Lay Leader. Mr. Blanchard 
was greeted by the Conference with warm applause. 

Bishop Underwood recognized Rev. Tim Lawson, representing the Board of 
Church and Society, since the motion that had passed on Wednesday afternoon 
appeared to be a substance of change rather than clarification or a gram- 
matical change. This had to do with the addendum to the report of Church 
and Society presented by Chaplain Paul Durbin. Tim Lawson made the follow- 
ing motion to delete the words ''support the legal government of El Salvador 
and'' (end of deletion) to delete the last two words ''that country.'' In 
the place of ''that country'' would be added the words ''El Salvador''. The 
complete paragraph would then read; ''The Louisiana Annual Conference also 
agrees to establish a covenant relationship with the church in El 
Salvador. ' ' 

Rev. John Koelemay felt that it was unfair to deal with this matter in 
the absence of Chaplain Durbin, who had to be away from Conference today; 
nevertheless, the amended paragraph was presented for a vote and it was 
adopted. 

PASSAGE OF CHARACTER OF MINISTERS: Dr. Alfred L. Norris, chairperson 
of the Board of Ordained Ministry, presented the report on the Committee on 
Conference Relations. He reported that there were no charges against any 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 101 



minister of the Conference with regards to their character or 
administration. The Conference approved the report. 



REPORT NO. 5 OF THE BOARD OF MINISTRY: The Rev. Bob Burgess presented 
the Probationary Members who were elected in Executive Session of the Annual 
Conference and ordained as Deacons on Wednesday evening. Each spoke 
briefly. They were Alfred Conrad Bakewell, III, Kenneth Roger Bowman, Debra 
Kay Brazzel, David Robert DeWitt, Harold Wayne Grant, Joseph William Gregg, 
Jr., Miles Thomas Holladay, Kenneth Wayne Irby and Randall Barkley 
Scrivener. 

MATTER OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: The matter of personal privilege was 

granted to Rev. Bob Burgess, who commented that this class was not the 

greatest in ''numbers'' but the quality of these probationary members was 
outstanding. 

The second part of Report No, 5 of The Board of Ordained Ministry was 

also given by Rev. Bob Burgess. He presented the following retirees to the 
Conference. (The wife of each minister stood beside her husband as the 
report was presented.) Retired in Full Connection: Wilbert C. August, Sr. , 
Garland C. Dean, David Leroy Dykes, Douglas L. McGuire, Robert Reece Miller, 
Webb Donnolly Pomeroy, Lewis L. Streams, Jr., Luther W. Taylor, Roger 
Transpers and Jay Albert Trickett; Retired Associate Members: Willie R. 
Lafayette; Retired Local Pastor: Marshall Comeaux Paine. Report No. 5 of 
the Board of Ordained Ministry was adopted. 

Bishop Underwood presented Rev. Kirby Vining, who in turn presented Dr. 
Harry Hale, Jr. of Monroe, who was co-author of the interesting book en- 
titled ''Clergy Women: Problems and Satisfaction. ' 'Rev. Vining pointed out 
that this book was dedicated to Dr. Lea Joyner and had come off the press 
shortly before her death. 

COMMITTEE ON COURTESIES: The report was presented by the chairperson, 
Rev. Brenda Layman. She gave special appreciation to the many who had done 
so much in making this Fifteenth Session of the Louisiana Annual Conference 
another glorious milestone in Louisiana accomplishments. A copy of this 
document is contained in the Journal. 

WHERE SHALL THE NEXT SESSION OF THE CONFERENCE BE HELD: Dr. John 
Fellers invited the Conference to have its opening session and any other 
sessions that it might desire to have at First United Methodist Church of 
Shreveport. Dr. Donald Webb, President of Centenary College, asked to share 
in the invitation because the Annual Conference was a mountaintop experience 
for Centenary College. The invitation was accepted by the Conference. 

MATTER OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: A matter of personal privilege was 
granted to Rev. Kenneth Fisher. He had noted that in the greetings from 
some of the retirees that they had not had the advantages of formal seminary 
training or other specialized training and paid tribute to their work and 
hoped that sometime in the future a way could be found to memorialize men 
like these who had contributed so much. 

MATTER OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE: A matter of personal privilege was 
granted to the Rev. Bill Matthews. He expressed thanks to the Board of 



102 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

Pensions for all they had done for the retired ministers throughout the 
year. 

Bishop Underwood then announced that the appointments for the 1985-86 
Conference year had been printed and would be in the hands of every minister 
and delegate after the benediction. He declared this printed paper to be 
the official appointment list of the Louisiana Annual Conference for the 
Fifteenth Session. 

Bishop Underwood then led the congregation in ' 'A Service Of Sending 
Forth* • calling for rededication on the part of both clergy and laity. A 
closing flag cermony was carried out in a very orderly fashion and was 
followed by the singing of the hymn '' Blessed Be The Tie That Binds''. 

ADJOURNMENT: Bishop Underwood pronounced the benediction of the 
Fifteenth Session of the Louisiana Annual Conference of The United Methodist 
Church meeting in Shreveport, Louisiana.

LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 103 



VI. EXECUTIVE SESSION 
LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

January 25, 1985 
First United Methodist Church 
Baton Rouge, La* 
8:00 P.M. 

Dr. Harvey G. Williamson, Secretary of the Annual Conference, announced 
that this was an Executive Session of the Annual Conference for clergy 
members only and that lay persons and visitors were not permitted to be a 
part of the proceedings. Following this announcement, Dr. Frank Poole, 
Minister of Music at First Church, Baton Rouge, led the ministers in 
singing three congregational hymns: ''0 For a Thousand Tongues to Sing, 1 ' 
' 'All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name,'' and ''God of Grace and God of 
Glory.'' At the conclusion of the ''hymn-sing,'' Rev. Ed Boyd, pastor of 
the Friendship-Corbin charge, led the group in the evening prayer. 

Bishop Walter L. Underwood called the Conference to order, using a 
special gavel that had been presented to him by Milton Vallery of First 
United Methodist Church in Alexandria. Mr. Vallery, a lay person in this 
congregation for many years, had made this gavel for the Bishop to use at 
his first Conference session. Bishop Underwood reported to the Conference 
that he had called them together to share his observations about appointment 
making as a result of his 38 years as a pastor. Before reading his position 
paper on ' 'Guidelines For Appointment Making in the Louisiana Annual Con- 
ference,'' Bishop Underwood read selected verses of scripture from II 
Corinthians, the 4th chapter. 

In the prologue of his paper, Bishop Underwood stated that this was an 
attempt on his part to articulate some guidelines for appointment making in 
Louisiana, and was intended to provide clarification and consistency both 
for himself and for the clergy and congregations of the Louisiana Annual 
Conference. 

After discussing the method of appointment making by Asbury, Coke and 
their successors, Bishop Underwood touched on the abuses of episcopal 
authority in appointment making that had gone on in the past. 

Bishop Underwood reminded the Conference that guidelines for 
appointment making are indicated in Paragraphs 527 through 531 of the 
1984 Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church. In addition to 
these, Bishop Underwood said he would like to implement and expand those 
directions with the following recommendations: 

1. No appointment should be made on the basis of salary only. 

2. No appointment should be made on the basis of seniority only. 

3. No appointment should be made on the basis of ''dependency 
syndrome. ' ' 

4. There should be no approval of laziness. 

5. There should be no encouragement for incompetency. 

6. No appointment should be made for the sake of expediency, political 
or personal, individual or collectively. 

7. Clergy who choose not to itinerate should not have prior claim over 
those who are willing to itinerate. 



104 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Bishop Underwood concluded his position paper by stating that there 
were two personal goals that were his, as Bishop of the Louisiana 
Conference, especially in regard to appointment making. First, to have 
compassion enough to be pastoral and, second, to be tough enough to make 
decisions with correct priorities. 

Following the reading of his position paper, Bishop Underwood invited 
questions regarding the paper and the whole matter of appointment making 
from the clergy in attendance at this Executive Session of the Conference. 

After answering questions posed by the clergy for over an hour, Bishop 
Underwood brought to a close this portion of the Executive Session of the 
Annual Conference. Following this Dr. Harvey G. Williamson, Conference 
Secretary, passed out the registration cards that were provided for this 
occasion. 

After receiving two or three announcements, Bishop Underwood called on 
Dr. Leonard Haynes, pastor of the Wesley United Methodist Church in Baton 
Rouge, to pronounce the benediction.

A. REPORTS OF PROGRAM BOARDS 
CONFERENCE COUNCIL ON MINISTRIES 



Casey Stengel is credited with having said, ''If you don't know where 
you're going, you'll most likely end up somewhere else.'' These seemed 
appropriate words for the United Methodist Church in Louisiana, for us, as 
we began the new quadrennium last year. 1984-85 was to be a time of 
transition— a time to celebrate what had been and envision what could and 
should be, carefully discerning new directions for our future ministry 
together. And so it was. 

As our Annual Conference welcomed Bishop Walter L. Underwood to 
leadership, so the Council elected a new chairman, new task force and 
committee members, and program board and agency heads. The Reverend 
Patterson Culligan, Conference Youth Coordinator, and Dr. Samuel Walker, 
Director of Special Ministries, moved on after years of faithful and 
fruitful service in the Conference Office, and two new staff persons were 
added: Dr. John Braden, Director of Education Ministries, and Reverend 
Roger Lathan, Director of Special Ministries. Thankfully much-needed 
stability and expertise were provided by the continuance of our Council 
Director, Dr. Harvey G. Williamson, and support staff. 

In order to facilitate the work of the Council and to bring it's 
operation into compliance with the 1984 General Conference, changes were 
also made in membership, structure and meeting schedule: More lay members 
insured a representative participation of the full constituency of Louisiana 
Methodism. Special interest task forces and committees were incorporated 
for better coordination and accountability. And, the Council added to it's 
October Planning and March Budget meetings a productive session following 
the Convocation of Boards. 

Seemingly, all that remained constant was the capacity of the lay and 
clerical leadership of Louisiana Methodism to confront the possibility and 
necessity of Christ's ministry among us. The Council as a whole immediately 
took on the task of implementing the Missional Priority as well as 
coordinating the numerous and noteworthy programs emerging from our Boards 
and Agencies. As reported below, both efforts represent fine responses to 
envisioning ministry for tomorrow and reflect the very best of quality 
Christian leadership. The result is a commendable discernment of ''which 
way" and a clear indication ''we are on our way!''. 

Charles B. Simmons, Chairperson 



Reports of the Council on Ministries 

1. Commission On Archives And History 

This Conference Commission has two fundamental responsibilities: (a) to 
promote, gather, and preserve records on every aspect of United Methodism in 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 141 



Louisiana, and (b) to preserve for future generations accounts of the 
persons behind Conference statistics. 

Records of programs, projects, and plans of Conference agencies provide 
current leaders with the collective wisdom and experience of as many years 
of human effort as the records allow. If records are gathered and used 
properly, agencies will not have to ,f reinvent the wheel'' every generation 
or every quadrennium but can ''stand on the shoulders'' of those who have 
gone before. By learning from such records, we can avoid repeating past 
mistakes and can build further on good foundations left by our predecessors. 
We urge all agencies to aid us in this part of our task by following the 
direction of the Discipline and sending copies of their minutes to the 
Conference Archives at Centenary College. 

Louisiana Methodism is far more than boards, commissions, and other 
agencies. Louisiana Methodists are Louisiana Methodism. The real witness 
and inspiration of Louisiana Methodism come through persons and are conveyed 
to the future through persons. Preserving the accounts of individuals is 
more difficult than preserving the records of agencies. The necessary 
documents are often in the form of personal letters, notes, diaries, 
journals, and the like. Understandably, families are often reluctant to 
give these up and sometimes through unintentional neglect let them 
deteriorate and become unusable. This loss makes it increasingly difficult 
as the years go by to reconstruct the life, accomplishments, and witness of 
individuals. The Commission urges anyone who has such material to contact 
the Conference Archives and make arrangements for copying or depositing the 
material and determining any restrictions on its use by researchers. 

The Commission on Archives and History, with the help of the Conference 
Archives at Centenary College and at Dillard University (for material on 
members and agencies of former Conference B), is always ready to help in 
gathering and preserving the documents on any and all aspects of Methodist 
heritage. 

The most significant accomplishment of the Commission and the ad hoc 
Committee to Write the History of Louisiana Methodism was getting the 
Conference history underway. Dr. Walter Vernon has done a large amount of 
research already and has produced a working outline and the first chapter of 
the book. The target date for release is Annual Conference, 1987. Members 
of the Committee are: Mrs. Norma S. Winegeart, chairperson, Mr. Welton 
Brumfield, Mrs. Inez Chrisentery, Dr. Clyde Frazier, Jr., Dr. Alton Hancock, 
Dr. Charles B. Simmons, Dr. Kirby A. Vining, and Dr. Harvey G. Williamson. 

Finally, the Commission has submitted to the Conference a resolution for 
approval and selection of district historians in accordance with the 
following guidelines:

2. Commission On Christian Unity And Interreligious Concerns 

The idea that a Christian should seek unity with other Christians did not 
originate with some person, group, committee, commission or board of the 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 143 



United Methodist Church; our Lord was the originator of this idea and he 
expressed it in his prayer recorded in the Gospel of John. 

Your Commission on Christian Unity stands ready to assist you as you 
seek ways and means to find and implement in your community the oneness of 
God's people for which our Lord prayed. We therefore offer the following 
recommendations : 

I. That in 1985 each local church begin a class for the study of the 
Foundation Documents of the United Methodist Church. These documents 
are found in Parts I through IV of the Discipline of the United 
Methodist Church, plus a collection of John Wesley* s sermons. The 
purpose is to have each Methodist understand his own tradition and lose 
forever that shameful statement of fact so often repeated: 
''Well, I'm a Methodist but I don't know what my church stands for.'' 



II. That those involved in the Christian Unity work-area of the local 
church make a study of the Bishops' Conciliar Report on the National 
Council of Churches that was presented to and accepted by the 1984 
General Conference of the United Methodist Church. 

The above recommended studies are in preparation for further studies 
of documents and position papers presented by the various ecumenical 
bodies to which we are related and with which we work. These will be 
recommended to you at a future date. 

In this regard, please note that Dr. David Trickett has been asked 
to represent the Louisiana Annual Conference when he attends the 
International Conference on Peace in London, England, in July 1985. 

III. We further recommend that the local congregations begin a search in 
their communities for people who call themselves Methodist but who are 
in a denomination other than The United Methodist Church. The purpose 
for this is to determine where they are located in order to establish 
relationships on a local level and possibly on a Conference level. You 
would help us by sending this information to the Commission in care of 
the Conference Council on Ministries Office. 

The churches of many local communities, both large and small, are 
engaged in a wide variety of cooperative ministries within their own 
community. Our Commission maintains a file containing some of these various 
ecumenical endeavors. We would be glad to share with your community some of 
this material for your study and possible use. Please request it through 
the Conference Council on Ministries. 

There are audio and video tapes available from our Conference 
Communications Office that will help a study group or local church 
understand the work of the National and World Councils as well as the work 
of the Consultation on Church Union. 

Individual members of our Commission are available to assist the local 
churches plan and implement a program of Christian Unity within your own 



144 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



community. Should there be need for understanding the agencies with which 
the United Methodist Church is related, we stand ready to help you get that 
information.

Eddie E. Morgan, Secretary 



3* Board Of Church And Society 

We begin this quadrennium with the realization that any effective 
action on the many social issues confronting us must be done through the 
involvement of local churches. The churches of the Louisiana Annual 
Conference are thus encouraged to become aware of these issues and to take 
responsible action that leads to justice, peace and quality living. Forums, 
seminars and other educational experiences are possibilities in every local 
church. 

The Board of Church and Society is now acquiring video and other 
educational material on many of the concerns impacting society. These 
materials are available through the Conference office. Special events are 
also planned to inform and train people who are interested in leading their 
churches to a keener awareness of what it means to be socially concerned and 
responsible. It is hoped that every church will plan at least one 
educational event a year on some major social issue. 



Committee on Peace and World Order 

For 1985, the Committee on Peace and World Order is moving in the 
direction of becoming a resource for local church programming. This 
committee will list resources (people, literature, media), provide ideas and 
topics, and work with local congregations in providing programs for the 
people. 

There are many resources within our Conference. There are people who 
are very knowledgeable in foreign affairs and nuclear relations. We have 
students and other guests from foreign countries who are very willing to 
serve, and who are capable of serving on panels to address questions such as 
''How could the United States become a more effective peacemaker in relation 
to my country?'' There are films and printed materials available to the 
local churches that address every side of the difficult questions that face 
our world today. The Committee on Peace and World Order will help the local 
church utilize these valuable materials. 

There are many difficult issues facing our world. It is incumbent upon 
the church to provide information and guidance with regard to the tough 
questions of life. The Committee on Peace on World Order recognizes that 
while questions concerning foreign and nuclear affairs are religious 
questions, they are also political questions. And they are questions about 
which reasonable persons disagree. Providing good and effective programming 
is a difficult task, but it is a task that we must do. 

Paul Smith 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 145 



Central America 

Central America is a region in great transition. Its peoples are proud 
but they live in such anxiety, uncertainty and fear. They are caught be- 
tween dividing forces within their country. Many have had to leave their 
country for political reasons. But when they come to the United States they 
are not welcomed, and must return to danger and even death. Some churches in 
the United States, for several years, have provided sanctuary for many who 
come. In recent months pastors of these congregations, which include at 
least two United Methodist Churches, have been charged with violating laws 
against the United States government by keeping illegal aliens. 

The Louisiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church stands 
beside the pastors and the congregations of those churches who provide 
sanctuary for these political refugees. We ask our own government to re- 
evaluate its laws which prevent some people from entering the United States 
for political reasons. Our country was born out of the influx of refugees 
who desired freedom from tyranny and oppression. 

The Board of Church and Society in cooperation with the National 
Division of the United Methodist Women and the Louisiana Conference United 
Methodist Women sponsored a two-day workshop on Central America and the 
Caribbean at Trinity United Methodist Church in Ruston, Louisiana in April 
of 1985. 

The Committee on Peace and World Order will provide several video tapes 
to the Conference Library for use by churches during 1985-86. Watch for the 
listing of subjects in the Louisiana Methodist Reporter during the years. 

Terry Willis 

Committee on Social and Economic Justice 

The Committee on Social and Economic Justice believes that many of the 
issues suggested for consideration are crucial concerns today. We experi- 
enced some difficulty in selecting a specific focus until we decided that an 
emphasis on ' 'Empowerment ' ' might well be a first step in our consistency 
developing deeper understanding of how we could achieve social change in 
relation to any of these issues. Our best assumption is that social change 
is best brought about by negotiation, but meaningful negotiation requires 
both sides have power. The strategies of empowerment aim to equalize the 
distribution of power by teaching those seeking change how to achieve power 
and use it effectively. The concept of empowerment defines power as the 
ability to act, because knowledge and a concerned constituency are brought 
together. Conceivably, if we achieved a deeper understanding of the 
strategies of empowerment, not only might we be better able to achieve 
productive action in a selected crucial issue, but also we might be able to 
help the disadvantaged achieve more power to negotiate effectively on the 
local level. We, therefore, propose that the Board sponsor a one-day Work- 
shop on * ' Strategies of Empowerment .' * 

Dr. Hilda Arndt 



146 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Environment Justice and Survival 

As stewards of God's natural order, we are mandated by God to have 
dominion over all the created order. As part of that mandate, we are always 
accountable to God to act responsibly and wisely as part of that creation. 
Our record has been poor; so we address the following areas of concern as 
Christian stewards of God's creation: 

(1) Animal Life. We recommend more concern be given to care for 
preserving the natural habitat for wild animals and more humane treatment by 
owners, municipally-run animal shelters, and research centers. 

(2) Land Use. We recommend the creation and enhancement of areas in 
our state set aside for the preservation of our forests, game and waterways. 
We encourage the U.S. Government to assist the small farmer in staying on as 
a mainstay of our farm industry. 

(3) Air Pollution. We abhor the indiscriminate use of fossil fuels, 
and our procrastination in improving technology to curb the pouring of 
poisons into the air. 

(4) The Seas. We continue to encourage the governments of our world 
to ratify the Law of the Sea adopted by the 1980 General Conference, to 
protect our seas and their resources from man's selfishness and militarism. 

(5) Energy. We encourage the search for realistic alternatives to our 
dependence on fossil fuels for our country's energy needs. 

(6) Use of Dangerous Chemicals. 

(a) Manufacture and Storage. The horrors of Bhopal, India, this 
year have brought us again to the realization of what some of 
our modern chemicals can do. We urge the Federal and State 
governments to require industries to disclose the presence of 
dangerous chemicals to the public in their areas, and to 
require more stringent safety regulations in their 
manufacture and storage. 

(b) Transportation. Thousands of trucks, planes, and railroad 
cars of dangerous substances pass through heavily populated 
areas of our state every day. We recommend a study of this 
transportation and strict enforcement of existing rules. We 
further commend those who have risked their lives in fighting 
spills and fires from these spills. 

(c) Disposal of Waste Products. Our state, and several others 
are in grave danger from the unscrupulous and indiscriminate 
dumping of manufacturing and human waste on the ground and 
into the waterways. We urge the churches of our conference 
to study this problem and to encourage legislators to find 
better ways to protect our water resources. District 
workshops on these concerns are badly needed, and will to be 
held in the future. 

(d) Nuclear Energy. We recommend a moratorium on the building of 
nuclear power plants, because of the ever-present possibility 
of nuclear disaster and the burgeoning amount of nuclear 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



147 



waste from the fuel and radioactive discarded parts of 
reactors. We urge the Federal government to find a more 
realistic and advisable solution to nuclear waste storage 
than storage in Louisiana salt domes. We urge the people of 
Louisiana to contact their legislators about this very 
serious matter. 

John Johns 



Political and Human Rights 

Your Board prayerfully calls upon every congregation in Louisiana 
United Methodism to carefully study the 1984 General Conference Social 
Principles of the United Methodist Church, especially in regard to our 
criminal justice system, and under the leadership of the Holy Spirit to 
undertake such action as they feel they have been guided as a Church to 
take. We ask that you remember that we are an integral part of Louisiana 
Interchurch Conference, and that these same concerns for criminal justice 
are deep concerns of that corporate body of the whole Christian community of 
Louisiana. 



Suggested possible action for your church: 



Support legislation which provides alternative forms of punishment, 
such as Restitution, Community Service Orders, House Arrest, Deferred 
Sentencing, Fines, Alcohol and Drug Treatment, Employment Assistance, 
Community Dispute Settlement, Emergency Release of Some First Offenders 
Under Intense Supervision. Churches are asked to investigate the inovative 
program developed by church and businessmen in Lafayette whereby first 
offenders of non-violent crimes are often sentenced by the judge to three to 
six months at a half-way house called Lafayette Community Correctional 
Center, where they are helped to get a job. They pay board and rent at the 
House, and they eat one meal a day with their families. If they do not 
strictly obey all the rules they go straight to jail. But if there is no 
infraction of rules during their terra at the House, they are released with 
no mark against their record, with a job and with family intact. This 
program was begun in order to make unnecessary the federally mandated new 
jail. • expensive beyond the capacity of the community to undertake. All of 
the above alternatives are for the purpose of reducing the number of inmates 
in our jails, so that present prison space may be used for hardened 
criminals. Then, new prisons (so very expensive) will not be necessary, and 
the money saved can be used to improve education. Local churches might 
consider the emerging movement for communities to assume more responsibility 
for young people who are in conflict with the law, rather than dependence 

care. Judges are releasing some juvenile offenders to 
or their church families for intensive supervision, 
instrumental about raising community and statewide con- 
the necessity for job training in juvenile correctional 
institutions, and aid in obtaining jobs, so that young people, when released 
from such institutions, will have an alternative to returning to crime.

The Board calls upon ministers and caring lay persons of our churches 
prepare themselves to minister to the crucial needs of victims of crime. 



148 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Communities of faith are just beginning to understand the depth of 
psychological and spiritual wounds of those who are victims of crime. Good 
Samaritans caring deeply and competently for the injured are still in short 
supply. We call upon the churches of our Conference to equip themselves to 
meet these crucial needs. 

The increasing number of persons who have been electrocuted in our 
state should make us sensitive to the importance of this issue. Churches of 
many denominations in our state have taken strong positions against capital 
punishment, especially since there is much evidence (from exhaustive 
studies) that capital punishment does not deter crime. In fact, it often 
accelerates the climate of violence which increases capital crimes, and 
which meanwhile lowers the ethical tone of society by brutalizing our 
attitudes toward offenders. Here again, churches may make a detailed study 
of this issue and may be able to lead the way in alternative ways of safely 
dealing with criminals of violence rather than capital punishment. We 
should be aware that almost all Western Nations have now abolished capital 
punishment and that we now have a higher crime rate than those who have 
moved byond this method of punishment. 

Excellent materials for studying the whole problem of criminal justice 
can be obtained from Louisiana Interchurch Conference. Recommended are 
Chuck Colson's booklet: ''Is There A Better Way?"; "Overcrowded Time. . . 
Why Prisons are so Crowded and What Can be Done About it"; "Time to 
Build?. . .The Realities of Prison Construction": "Whose Responsibility is 
it Anyway? - a Church Response to Juvenile Delinquency.

Child Abuse 

The alarming problem of family violence, particularly child abuse 
and the far-reaching affects it has on families and society demands a 
response from persons of faith. Statistics show the high correlation 
between child abuse and crime, delinquency, drug addiction, and other 
problems. The alarming number of abused children who grow up to repeat 
the pattern points to the critical need for intervention and prevention 
programs . 

Parents Anonymous is the world's greatest child abuse public 
education and treatment program, provided free to families. Parents 
Anonymous (P. A.) is able to do this through effective use of 
volunteers. 

Churches can assist "children of abuse" by providing meeting 
space, church volunteers, encouragement and spiritual support to P. A. 
families. 

It is our hope that churches In each district will work together 
with Parents Anonymous of Louisiana to start programs throughout the 
state where none exist, or help support programs already developed. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 149 



Alcohol 

According to the National Council on Alcoholism, Inc., alcoholism 
is the most neglected health problem in the United States, and ranks 
with cancer and heart disease as a major threat to the nation's health. 
''Therefore, we support the 1984 General Conference resolution to 
affirm in an intentional way, and with renewed zeal,'' the support of 
abstinence from alcohol as a faithful witness to God's liberating and 
redeeming love for persons . 

Alcohol presents a special case of drug abuse in Louisiana because 
of its widespread social acceptance, even of teenage drinking. Because 
of the terrible human cost from teenage drunk driving and teenage 
chemical dependence, we support efforts to raise the legal drinking age 
in Louisiana to 21. 



Child Care 

We re-affirm our commitment to the 1984 Resolution: Licensing of 
Child Care Agencies that urge the establishment of mandatory licensing 
for child care agencies in Louisiana. The health, safety, and welfare 
of children and young people are of vital importance to United 
Methodists in Louisiana. 

Housing 

Love for neighbor demands that Christians care about how 
adequately their neighbors are sheltered. Christians should identify 
with those who suffer daily from a shortage of available, decent, safe 
and sanitary housing. 

Many United Methodists are already engaged in the struggle to 
change intolerable housing conditions. We urge local churches, dis- 
tricts and annual conferences to strengthen every housing ministry 
within their communities by providing additional financial and 
technical counseling and spiritual resources. 

Persons with Handicapping Conditions 

We celebrate the establishment of a Conference Committee on 
persons with handicapping conditions. We pray that this committee will 
lead individuals and churches to eliminate barriers, structural and 
personal, which have kept many persons with handicapping conditions on 
the fringe of, or even excluded from the fullness of Christian Worship, 
fellowship and service. We seek the support - personal, prayerful, and 
financial of all our conference boards and agencies, to help this 
committee help our churches make the adjustments necessary to become 
more inclusive. 

Faithful Response to Violence 

We deplore the celebration of retributive, vigilante violence 
which has become increasingly common and disturbingly popular in our 
time. The terrorist-style bombings of abortion clinics, the execution 
of accused criminals by private citizens, the cheer-leading and 
champagne toasts which have come to mark official executions, cannot be 
justified, even by the ''law of retribution,'' and certainly cannot be 
considered acceptable by Christian persons. We urge our churches to 
help United Methodists, and others, find more faithful and fruitful 



150 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



means to understand, confront, and even transform the social problems 
which beget such violence. 

We urge local congregations to observe DWI Concerns Sunday, June 
30th, and Seatbelt Sunday, September 1, 1985. Churches must speak a healing 
word to those whose loved ones are lost, often needlessly, in tragic highway 
accidents during the Independence Day and Labor Day holidays. Christian 
love compels us to remind ourselves and our neighbors of the facts before 
tragedy strikes. Over 50% of highway fatalities are directly linked to 
drunk driving. Seat belts can save lives. Let us bear a faithful witness. 

Dorothy M. Taylor 
Committee Chairperson 



4. Commission on the Status and Role of Women 

The mandate of General Conference, as stated in the 1984 Discipline , 
is that the Administrative Board and Council on Ministries of™ the local 
church shall include a representative of the status and role of women (para. 
254, 258, 260). The work area of status and role of women as stated in 
paragraph 261.8 shall be chaired by a woman. Each local church Board of 
Trustees shall be at least l/3rd women (para. 2524). The Commission on the 
Status and Role of Women is committed to full, equal responsibility and 
participation of women in the total life and mission of the church, with 
women sharing fully in the power and policy-making at all levels of the 
church. Local church representatives may obtain from the conference chair- 
person of the commission a training packet for this position. 

Worship aids are being sent through * ' Coverage 1 ' to assist clergy and 
laity with inclusive language. Each mailing includes a position paper and 
sheet of inclusive worship aids. The * 'Celebration of Women in Methodism in 
200 Years'' was observed in the conference September 9, 1984. 

Though this commission developed and has cared for Child Care during 
Annual Conference sessions, we now are turning these responsibilities over 
to the Annual Conference. Over the past five years we have experienced a 
yearly increase in participation for this vital service. It will be 
available during all sessions of the Annual Conference. Reservations must 
be sent to Mrs. Doris Marsalis, 520 Herndon, Shreveport, LA 71101, by May 
15th. 

The commission chairperson attended the Jurisdictional Training Event- 
in December and met with other commission representatives from the 
jurisdiction. This work area workshop was led by Nan G. Self, a staff 
member of the General Commission on the Status and Role of Women. 

Major concerns of the commission for this quadrennium are: 

1. Inclusive worship: worship language, worship accessibility, 
worship aids. 

2. Participation of women fully and equally in all levels of 
responsibility of the Church: local, district, and conference. 






LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 151 



3. Balance of boards, agencies and commissions to be in line with the 
Discipline - 1/3 laymen, 1/3 laywomen, 1/3 clergy. 

4. Assist the local churches in nominations of men and women into 
''crossover'' positions traditionally held by the opposite sex. 

5. Bringing to attention, through various means, the vast wealth of 
knowledge and talent of women in the local churches of the 
Louisiana Annual Conference. 

6. Salary equitability (clergy and lay staff). 

Mrs. Betty M. Rowell, Chairperson 
5. Board of Discipleship 

The Board of Discipleship is moving into many areas that reflect the 
needs of our church in the 1980' s. Faced with a declining membership across 
the entire denomination, and a loss at home in the Louisiana Annual 
Conference, our Board is working to provide leadership in many areas that 
will, we feel offer alternatives to apathy and recent trends in 
participation. 

One of our most effective structural decisions has been to network the 
conference on a district basis, forming those persons from each district 
whose task relates to Discipleship objectives into a common task force. 
This of course was the format of the church up until the raid 1960's, and we 
feel it will offer a united approach to ministries rather than the often 
fragmented policies of recent years. 

All in all, the Board of Discipleship working to meet the needs of all 
Louisiana United Methodists, and the following are but a few of our 
projected ministries for this calendar year. 

H. A. Harrington, Chairman 



Evangelism 

Evangelism in the last analysis must take place from the local church 
base. Mass rallies are good, but the actual focus of winning persons to 
Christ will always be done in and around the ministry of the local church. 

Equipping local churches and pastors must be the task of the section on 
evangelism of the Board of Discipleship. Pastors must be exposed to a 
variety of models and successful approaches for them to become inspired and 
motivated to make evangelism an intentional part of the local church's 
ministry. 

To this end, we propose two significant events: 

A. We will bring Dr. Robert Orr, of the American Institute of Church 

Growth, Pasadena, California, to Louisiana for a one-day workshop with 

pastors and key lay persons. This will take place on September 10th, 

1985, and will be held in First United Methodist Church, Alexandria. It 

would be expected that many congregations would enter a ''two-year'' 



152 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



plan with church growth, drawing upon their expertise and becoming 
model churches for growth within the conference. 

B. Because our churches represent so many different cultural, theological, 
and physical settings, we feel it important that we bring to Louisiana 
several pastors who represent successful growing ministries in many of 
the same settings we find Louisiana Methodists in, and utilize their 
expertise during an extended setting such as Pastors School. We would 
bring pastors from across the denomination representing rural, urban, 
inner-city, multi-racial, large, small, circuits, and other possible 
identities whose records in these settings would make excellent training 
models for our own pastors in those similar settings. We propose this 
be done as the major setting for the 1986 Pastors School. Having 
received the enthusiastic support for this concept from our Bishop, 
plans are underway with the Board of Ordained Ministry for this to be 
firmed up and offered to the pastors and laity of Louisiana. 

John Sewell 



United Methodist Christian Education Outdoors 

We recognize that an effective camping program is always a priority of 
those conferences with strong youth programs. In those settings, the 
conference priority can look to camping as a very effective tool for 
evangelism and for reclaiming inactive members. We in Louisiana need to 
move boldly to make United Methodist Christian Education Outdoors a top 
flight ministry of the conference, rather than the program of hit or miss 
camping experiences we have had in recent years. To this end, we propose 
and will work toward the following: 

1. To have more and better materials available, with earlier access, and 
to make it a conference-wide distribution. 

2. To more effectively coordinate the district coordinators in a 
networking task force format, and to include Camp Superintendents in a 
conference- wide task force annual meeting, spring and fall. 

3. To institute a policy whereby pastors who move can still direct camps 
anywhere in the state; to make camps available to anyone in any 
district. An early list of all camps, programs, and directors would be 
mailed throughout the conference. 

4. The Board of Discipleship is strongly in favor of a Conference 
Camping/Retreat Center, and will offer the special committee 
established for that purpose our full support. 

5. Make a special time slot during Convocation of Boards for all camping 
coordinators to meet with the Bishop. 

6. Move to establish a statewide file on such resources as camp leaders, 
staff personnel, and interested persons. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 153 



7. All camps should have hired staff for the season in such areas as water 
front safety, kitchen, clean-up. Content /Program persons should be all 
volunteers as far as possible. 

8. We propose that all camps move toward an executive position 
arrangement, whereby leadership and oversight is contained in a single 
executive director and/or board of managers. 

9. We urge all volunteers and staff for camps to participate in district 
and conference-wide training, especially those involved in 24 hour 
duty. 

10. We would look, to the future when UMCEO would move beyond the camping 
experience alone and into such areas as mission tours, work camps, 
travel camps, etc. 

John Oldham 



Scouting 

Scouting is alive and well in United Methodist Churches in the 
Louisiana Annual Conference. In 1984 our Conference was #1 in the South 
Central Jurisdiction in both the number of new Scouts served and new units 
formed in Methodist Churches. 

Our Conference Scouting Committee is expanding to become more inclusive 
and more effective. We request the Conferences* persmission to add to our 
Committee a representative from each of the six Girl Scout Councils. One of 
the most exciting developments this year is the involvement of the Girl 
Scouts in our Methodist Scouting emphasis. Indeed, with the help of Girl 
Scout leaders in Louisiana, we will be testing programs which may result in 
a greater involvement of Girl Scouting in Methodist Churches nationwide. 

Exciting plans have been made for Annual Conference 1985 to make 
Scouting ministry very visible. Plans include: 1) Boy Scout and Girl Scout 
displays; 2) Boy Scout and Girl Scout honor guards to post colors and retire 
colors in Gold Dome; 3) a mini-camparee of 200 to 300 Boy Scouts on the 
Centenary Campus the night before the Scouting report is made to Annual 
Conference; 4) Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and leaders in uniform to present the 
Scouting Report; 5) presentation of Bishop's Award for Excellence to all 
units meeting the requirements; and 6) presentation of God and Service Award 
to a Scouter with over 70 years of service. 

The first Bishop's Dinner for Scouting was held in the Baton Rouge- 
Hammond and the Baton Rouge-Lafayette Districts on November 29, 1984, at 
First United Methodist Church, Baton Rouge. It was a well attended and 
most worthwhile evening. A Bishop's Dinner is planned for the Lake Charles 
District the latter part of July. 

On May 4, 1985, there will be a Conference Scouting Committee meeting 
followed by a training event for our District Coordinators of Scouting 
Ministry.

154 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Worship 

The Task Force on Worship of the Louisiana Conference proposes the 
following priorities to be carefully explored and worked toward during the 
1984 to 1988 quadrennium. 

1. To emphasize the central place of worship on all levels of life of 
the Louisiana Annual Conference* 

2. To plan with an awareness of the diversified spiritual needs of 
congregations. 

3. To promote an intentional sharing and use of the worship resources 
produced by the General Church in order to encourage fresh vitality 
in worship services. 

4. To encourage Biblical literacy and Sacramental awareness in 
planning for worship. 

The section on Worship will publish a new Book of Services in September 
of 1985. We are already planning four regional workshops with ministers of 
the conference to promote the use of this new resource. 

Ted Standley 



Spiritual Formation 

The Section on Spiritul Formation was officially begun as a part of the 
General Board of Discipleship, for the '84-' 88 quadrennium. Its existence 
represents for the first time the awareness that our inner, spiritual 
grounding must be a significant part of our own growth journey, and for each 
of us as clergy or laity to offer meaningful ministry. The section on 
Spiritual Formation is developing a three day weekend patterned after the 
Roman Catholic Cursillo. 

The new program, officially known as The Walk To Emmaus, is slowly 
becoming a meaningful channel through which we all might experience a look 
into our inner selves as we interact in prayer and study with others. 

A Walk to Emmaus is being sponsored by the Mississippi Cursillo in 
Jackson, Mississippi August 22-25th. Several clergy and laity from the 
Louisiana Conference will take part, and eventually our own conference will 
be able to sponsor this experience two or three times a year. This is an 
exciting adventure, and within a year or two we are certain the experience 
will be a valuable part of many, many Louisiana Methodists' spiritual 
journey. 



H. A. Harrington 



Family Life 



The Board of Discipleship will sponsor a day-long training experience 
in each district (or combinations of districts) this fall, during which Dr. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 155 



Douglas Ezell, newly-appointed director of family ministries at the 
Methodist Children's Home in Ruston, will work with pastors to improve their 
counseling skills. 

Dr. Ezell will provide leadership into strengthening pastoral care 
techniques, updated methods and theories of counseling and identifying 
behavioral trends. Pastors will be invited to submit their own tapes or 
verbatims of counseling sessions for critique and review. The expected 
value of these sessions is twofold. First, we are introducing Dr. Ezell to 
the conference as a leader in family therapy, and a resource person to the 
conference, and secondly, that the pastors will have the opportunity to 
update themselves in a key pastoral need. 

Henry Blount, Cabinet Liaison 
H. A. Harrington 



Young Adults 

Drawing upon the excellent programs and insights of the Asbury Church 
in Lafayette, we recognize the strong emerging need for ministry among the 
singles of our conference. Therefore, we propose a Singles Conference be 
held on an annual conference, moving from one major population center to 
another, and being held in the spring so as not to interfere with the 
program already in place at Asbury. 

Education/Children 

The Board of Discipleship is committed to making Christian Education 
more visible in the conference. To this end, we support the following: 

A. Establish an annual Christian Education dinner during Annual 
Conference, during which outstanding Christian education programs 
and the personnel associated with them would be honored. These 
would represent three levels of church sizes, so that the entire 
conference would be eligible for nomination by the District 
Superintendents . 

B. More vigorously supply lab schools and the certification of 
leaders in children, youth , adult education. The Board commits 
itself to helping fund these efforts out of the Christian 
Education Sunday fund (formerly known as Rally Day). 



6. Board Of Global Ministries 

The work of the Conference Board of Global Ministries is carried out 
through eight committees and task groups, whose reports follow this 
introduction. All of these groups have endeavored to spell out what they 
intend to accomplish during the entire 1984-1988 quadrennium, and most of 
the quadrennial goals of our Board are included in the report which follows. 



156 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Two new committees have been formed, The Committee on Local Church 
Revitalization, and Volunteers in Mission, to assist the Conference to 
implement significant new concerns, and it is suggested that their reports 
be read with special care. A proposed new missional Advance Special re- 
lationship with Jamaican Methodism is noted in the report of the Committee 
on Promotion, Education and Cultivation. The Committee on Disaster Relief's 
report consists of completely revised guidelines for United Methodism's 
responses to disasters within Louisiana. Encouraging progress reports and 
useful information are also to be found in each of the other reports. 

Thanks to every Board and Committee member for a job well done! 

Dr. L. Ray Branton, Chairperson 



Global Ministries Financial Officer 

The finance officer of the Board of Global Ministries is charged with 
the responsibility of the bookkeeping and final approval of the expenditures 
of the various funds that the board receives from the Conference and 
national agencies. These funds, with the exception of the revolving loan 
fund, have committees that allocate the funds for each committee, but the 
finance officer reviews and approves the expenditures of the various 
committees as recommended by the Conference Council on Finance and 
Administration. 

As of February 28, 1985, the balances of the various funds are as 
follows: 

*Church Extenstion $75,829.34 

*Century Three 11,466.67 

**Support Action Ministry (2,836.22) 

Conference Disaster Fund 26,407.89 

*Revolving Loan Fund (718.04) 

*These funds are carried over each Calendar year. 
**This fund is pro-rated monthly and has a zero balance December 31st of 
each year. 

The funds that the board spends for the operations of its committees 
and the administration of the board are not carried over from year to year. 
In the conference year of June 1, 1984 through February 28, 1985, the 
revolving loan fund granted a total of $54,500.00 in loans to eleven (11) 
churches and/or institutions. 

JoAnne White, Finance Officer 



Church Extension Committee 

The Conference Year 1984-85 has been exciting for church extension in 
Louisiana. United Methodists in Louisiana contributed $432,000 to begin new 
churches and revitalize existing congregations, out of the $500,000 asking 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 157 



approved by the Annual Conference two conferences ago. In 1985, church 
extension encourages all churches to pay this apportionment in full in order 
that maximum resources might be available for the important work of church 
extension. 

The Century III Program has been concluded. Over $95,000 was collected 
against a goal of $100,000. These funds are being used to assist the 
congregation of Saint Andrew's United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge to 
retire the debt on their property. 

The following action has been taken by church extension for this 
conference year: A) Property has been purchased for the Faith United 
Methodist Church in West Monroe, Louisiana. This is the newest church in 
the conference. The membership is approaching one hundred and Rev. Jack 
0'Dell is the Pastor. B) Property in New Orleans East with easy access to 
Interstate-10 has been purchased. The New Orleans/Slidell District and the 
Board of Global Ministries are jointly funding the acquisition of this 
property in the fastst growing area of New Orleans. C) Two sites in the 
City of Monroe have been acquired on Highway 165 in an area experiencing 
rapid coramerical development. 

Church extension continues to provide salary support for four pastors. 
Our projection is that by 1987, there will be seven new church situations in 
Louisiana requiring salary support. 

The services of Mr. Ted McEachern of Nashville, Tennessee, have been 
contracted to assist our conference in the process of selecting new church 
sites. Mr. McEachern has met with the Board of Global Ministries and the 
Bishop and other leaders of our Conference to help Louisiana perfect a plan 
of site selection. It is felt that his consultation will be of assistance 
to our conference into the year 2000. 

Representatives of the Church Extension Committee have attended two 
jurisdictional meetings in Dallas on Local Congregation Development. The 
goal of these gatherings is to assist Annual Conferences in Jeveloping 
standardized procedures in beginning new congregations. 

Chris Andrews, Chairperson 



Diaster Relief 

The purpose of this committee is to witness to the love and care of the 
people of Christ by helping those who have been affected by disaster. 
This help will manifest itself in the form of pastoral care, financial 
aid, and lay involvement. 

1. In our administration of assistance we will concentrate upon those 
people/families who slip between the cracks of the other established 
systems, as well as immediate relief while waiting for other systems to 
help. The best way to help is to interview people, discover their 
needs, find what help has been given, where they have gone for help and 
from this information determine how you can help. You are urged to be 
in contact with other groups who are working the disaster so as not to 
duplicate aid already being given. 



158 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



2. An account of all monies received and expended will be kept by disaster 
relief committee members or representatives. 



3. No duplication of assistance-aid by other agencies such as Red cross 
and FEMA will be repeated, 

4. Referrals and verification of need from other agencies will be 
accepted. 

5. Aid will not be restricted to United Methodists. 

6. There will be a limit of $500 per family per disaster. In cases of 
extreme need beyond this point, contact your Disaster Committee

and administration of aid. 

8. In the case of single family disaster, we will attempt to respond 
if called upon for immediate first twenty-four hour relief. 
Additionally, we will work as an advocate for the family seeking out 
other types of aid or giving information where additional aid might be 
found. 

9. There will be no salaries paid from this fund. Volunteers only will be 
used in administration of funds. 

10. The location of need will be the site of distribution. 

11. Guidelines for reimbursement of volunteers personal expense will be 
that of Louisiana Conference. 

12. The Disaster Committee will publicize its efforts in areas of need. 

13. Assistance will go only to victims of disaster until funds are 
exhausted.

15. Monies undistributed will revert back to Conference Disaster Fund. 

16. Some exceptions to above rules may be granted after consultation with 
the Disaster Committee Chairperson and/or the local area's District 
Superintendent . 

Tom Howe, Chairperson 



Health and Welfare Committee 

Ministries of Health and Welfare are those activities which are 
directed toward helping people to achieve and maintain a sense and state of 
well-being. These are direct services and also advocacy learned from 
involvement in direct services. Ministries of Health and Welfare provide 
for the use of human gifts and skills and they are a channel through which 
God's love is made known. They are aimed toward empowering people to care 
for themselves and others. 

One of the major responsibilities of this Committee is promotion of the 
Good Samaritan Offering which is divided between six institutions related to 
the Louisiana Conference: Peoples' Community Center, Lafon Home, Pendleton 
Memorial Methodist Hospital, Methodist Home, all located in New Orleans; 
Methodist Children's Home in Ruston and Retired Ministers Home Board in 
Bossier City. Accordingly, the following goals have been adopted, and 
action plans are underway to help us accomplish our aims: 

Health and Welfare Committee Goals 

I. Increase giving to Good Samaritan Fund by: 

a. Coordinated publicity of Fund along with an emphasis on each 
institution each month in the Louisiana Methodist Reporter. 

b. Publicizing speakers who are available to local churches, districts, 
etc. to tell the institutions' stories. 

c. Encouraging local churches to reach a goal in giving, suggested by 
Health and Welfare Ministries Committee in a letter from 
Chairperson. 

d. Planning and participating in an award recognition program for 
churches meeting or exceeding suggested goals. 

e. Planning events for District and Local Health and Welfare 
Representatives to visit Conference institutions and having training 
in Fund promotion. 

II. Re-evaluate and make recommendations regarding the formula for 



160 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



distribution of Good Samaritan Funds to the six participating 
institutions. 

III. Establish a task group to study, review, and update the Conference 
Relationship Statement regarding its institutions in accordance 
with A Guide on Relationship , revised 1984, by Health and Welfare 
Ministries Department. 

IV. Plan and Implement training programs for: 

a. District and local Health and Welfare representatives for Good 
Samaritan Fund and additional emphases of the Health and Welfare 
Committee, such as: 

1 . Aging 

2. Handicapping conditions 

3. Health for all by 2000 

4. Child, youth, and faimily welfare 

5. Women and health. 

b. Staff and others related to Conference institutions in Fund 
Development and Promotion methods. 

V. Develop by-laws to guide the Health and Welfare Committee in its 
functioning and the institutions in their relationship to the Committee 
and the Conference. 

Mary Margaret Barr, Chairperson 

Hunger Task Force 

With ''hunger*' no longer designated as a missional priority, but with 
the numbers of people suffering from its reality ever-growing, the Hunger 
Task Force seeks to encourage in our Conference a continued heightened 
awareness of the Intricacies of the issues, the complexities of the root 
causes, and the Christian mandate to feed God's people. 

At the annual ''Hunger Banquet'' at this Annual Conference, the Task 
Force will outline some of its objectives as it seeks to understand its role 
among our Conference priorities. The Hunger Task Force will assume more of 
a role of ''clearing house'' and ''interpreter,'' as so many of our 
congregations are taking far more initiative in creating and implementing 
outreach ministries to impact on local and world hunger problems. 

The Task Force encourages continued support of the F.I.S.H. ministry 
and the World Hunger Scholarship Program. We encourage Districts , with the 
direction of the Superintendents and the chairs of the District Council on 
Ministries, to appoint ''Hunger'' representatives and establish ''Hunger'' 
priorities. We encourage in-put into a projected program now under study by 
the Task Force, called HARVEST, a project to secure Louisiana products for 
sale or delivery to regional depositories, to raise money for ' 'Hunger' ' 
projects. 






LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 161 



The Hunger Task Force encourages your Ideas. Please respond with 
questions or suggestions to the Reverend Rick Hebert, P. 0. Box 698, 
LaPlace, LA 70069-0698. 

Rick Hebert, Chairperson 



Promotion, Education and Cultivation 

The Committee on Promotion, Education and Cultivation is continuing to 
keep Louisiana United Methodist aware of Mission needs and opportunities 
through: 

Promotion of missions through communication, involving the local 
church, the district level and the conference level. 

Education of God's people, emphasizing the mission field and its 
importance. 

Cultivation of mission through participation in Conference and General 
Advance by all local churches. 

Each church and individual is urged to share the rich blessings of 
becoming involved in Mission by participating in prayer and giving of self 
and resources. These Mission opportunities are for your consideration: 

GENERAL ADVANCE SPECIALS

of General Advance Specials ''Partnership in Missions'' to each local 
church. This catalog lists over 4,000 programs and projects in 70 countries 
and in every state in the nation for mission involvement. 

Mission in Jamaica . A team from our Conference will present specific 
projects for your consideration at the Annual Conference. Jamaica is a 
country that has ''hard times but high hopes.'' This presentation will 
highlight opportunities for work groups, specialty work and fund raising.

Local Church Revitalization Committee 

The purpose of the Committee on Local Church Revitalization is to 
identify and aid local churches that need to revitalize their ministries. 
Recently, Rev. Ted McEachern, a United Methodist minister from the South 
Carolina Conference, and head of the Nashville-based Association for 
Christian Training and Services, presented a detailed statistical study of 
the Louisiana Conference, including each local church. This data was 
gathered and formulated from records accumulated from 1970 to 1983. it 
dealt with membership and average attendance in church and church school, 
program and operating expenses, benevolences paid, pastor's compensation, 
and total expenses. 

This data was used to construct profiles for each district and local 
church, as well as the whole conference. Though these statistics point out 
some disturbing trends for our churches, we are excited about the 
possibilities they can awaken us to. It is the intention of this committee 
to offer guidance and aid to any church in the conference that recognizes 
the need for revitalization and is willing to do something about it. 

District Committees on Local Church Revitalization have been organized 
and will be actively studying the churches within their respective districts 
for the next several months. In October, Rev. Ted McEachern will be 
visiting with each district to formulate strategies and train personnel for 
the revitalization process. 

This may be one of the most important ventures the Louisiana Conference 
has undertaken in several years. We ask for the support and cooperation of 
every congregation and pastor in giving new life to our churches and 
conference through this revitalization program.

166 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Volunteers In Mission 

Encouraging Volunteers in Mission is one of the new programs of the 
South Central Jurisdiction for the next quadrennium. 

Volunteers in Mission is a way of life as old as faith and as new as 
hope. 

Louisiana United Methodists have been doing ' 'Volunteering in Mission 1 ' 
from the days when Nolley and others were invited to preach in Louisiana 
homes . 

Since 1948 work camps and youth caravans sparked new ways of outreach. 
Most every district in our conference has recently been involved in 
Volunteers in Mission. 

As our society has become more complex the skills and abilities of 
United Methodists have also increased. 

The purpose of VIM through the Louisiana Conference Board of Global 

Ministries is to bring together the needs of the world with the gifts and 

graces of United Methodists so that the Holy Spirit can guide us in our next 
steps . 

The need for the church to proclaim by word and deed the whole gospel 
for the whole person relative to short-term missions was brought home rather 
clearly on a mountain side in Haiti while working on the construction of a 
church. One native lay person led the group in prayer one morning and while 
giving thanks used these remarks, ' 'We were lost and thought no one cared. 
No one knew where we were until these men came by.'' The need for this 
church plus many, many other needs of various kinds will never be met unless 
you and I ''stop by'' to assist. 

Vital to the people of our church is the realization and experience of 
their oneness in Christ through shared experience with Christians across 
national, cultural, and racial lines. 

Assisting us in this task is the General Board of Global Ministries. 
At Conference a notebook on ' 'How to Conduct a Volunteer in Mission 
Project'' will be available. 

Gretta M. Moffet, 301 South Convent, Tucson, Arizona 85701 is the Field 
Representative to assist us in bringing together needs of the world and the 
abilities of Louisiana United Methodist. 

In this notebook adopted for us will be a foreword by Bishop Underwood. 
Also some projects in our own Jurisdiction will be listed. 

James M. Poole, 411 Second Street, Natchitoches, Louisiana 71457, 318- 
357-8296 will serve as Coordinator for our Conference. Also a Trainer for 
mission opportunities will be available at Conference. 

These persons may be called upon by churches or districts wishing some 
guidance in this area of ''Volunteers''. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 167 



Much has been done and learning has evolved from experience. Our note 
book plus suggestions and training opportunities will enable mission 
projects to be more fruitful. 

Volunteers in Mission has grown out of the faith expressions of the 
local church. People are going all over the world in mission. 

Our purpose is to enable this to continue to happen in order to make 
the compassionate spirit of Christ present in the United Methodist Church 
relevent to some of the world's troubles; that hope, faith and love endure. 

United Methodist Volunteers in Mission Guidelines: 

1. The provision of volunteers must be in response to a felt need 
communicated to the organization by the mission area with approval of 
one of the general agencies of the United Methodist Church (sponsoring 
agency) . 

2. Volunteers must possess the skills required and requested. In the case 
of teams, for example building teams, only those who can be supportive 
of the skilled labor should in addition be included. Age and health 
factors should be considered in the process of selection. 

3. Teams should not be more than can be accommodated by the host church in 
order that undue burden may not be placed upon it. 

A. All arrangements required for the proper execution of the project 
should be made prior to the arrival of the volunteers on the field. In 
the case of a building project, all building materials should be 
available locally prior to the arrival of the team. 

5. All volunteer work being undertaken should be coordinated through the 
BGM or the SCJ UMVIM office and the sponsoring agency. 

6. All teams going out under the agencies of this organization should have 
orientation prior to departure regarding local church structure, 
culture, the political setting and peoples among whom they will be 
living and working. Orientation should also be given on arrival on the 
field by a representative of the local church. 

7. All projects undertaken should be geared to participation where 
possible by local personnel. Work should be done with local people, 
not done for them. 

8. Teams as far as possible should be broadly representative with regard 
to sex, age and racial composition. 






9. There shall be a debriefing and evaluation period after the project is 
completed and a report with recommendations for future involvement made 
to the Jurisdictional Coordinator and the sponsoring agency. 

10. All projects will present an appropriate audit of all money spent to 
the Conference Board of Global Ministries.

La fori Home 



The construction of the new Lafon Home was completed in July of 1984. 
We were licensed and certified by the Louisiana Department of Health and 
Human Resources on August 8, 1984 for eighty-nine residents. The home 
offers a variety of services to its residents. The fully trained nursing 
staff is headed by a Director of Nurses, Althea J. Lisberg. Additionally, 
our medical staff consists of two medical doctors and a dentist. The 
residents' spiritual needs are serviced by our chaplain, Rev. Samuel W. 
Walker, Sr. 

On September 16, 1984 our building was consecrated by Bishop Walter 
Underwood in a glorious ceremony. 

Through the supportive services of the Lafon' s Women's Auxiliary we 
have acquired an organ and a piano for the enjoyment and enrichment of our 
residents. Also, the auxiliary has donated a projector and numerous 
cassettes for the initiation of our educational program. With the aid of 
these instruments, we are able to conduct in-service programs for each 
department. These types of educational aids will greatly enhance our high 
quality of health care to our consumers through continuing education of our 
staff. Our education department is headed by Alfreda A. Jenkins. 

A resident council has recently been organized by the Social Worker. 
Through this council our residents are given opportunities to address their 
immediate concerns. 

The Lafon staff is most grateful to the many friends and benefactors 
who have helped make our opening months such a rewarding experience. 

Thanks to our Lord for guiding us through these opening months. And 
thanks to all for their continuing prayers. 

Edward ''Sandy'' Lang, Administrator 



Lydia Patterson Institute 



Lydia Patterson Institute has a unique and important mission on the 
U.S. /Mexico border in El Paso. The institute provides a bi-national, bi- 
cultural Christian environment where faith and knowledge interact to enrich 
and nurture hundreds of young lives yearly. A fully accredited Pre- 
collegiate school, L.P.I, offers a quality educational ministry to Juarez 
and El Paso students. 

The majority of the 325 students attending L.P.I, commute from Juarez 
daily. Approximately 25% are El Paso residents. All have a need of the 
quality Christian education and environment which the institute provides. 
Many begin their education at L.P.I, with English-as-a-Second Language 
class and then proceed to complete their pre-collegiate education. Everyone 
receives the full benefit of L.P.I. 's academic and Religious Life program 
and environment. Twenty-five teachers and staff are providing outstanding 
leadership to this mission at the present time. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 169 



Academic standards have been strengthened during the last year 
according to guidelines set by the Texas Education Agency and student 
support services have been increased. A new Office of Student Life provides 
counseling services, social activites, spiritual life programs and student 
recruitment activities. 

Tuition Assistance Grants are made to needy students, primarily those 
who are still being impacted by the continuation of the peso devaluation in 
Mexico. Having as a primary purpose to prepare students for higher 
education, L. P. I. is participating enthusiastically in the newly formed 
Consortium for Hispanic Education in the Southwest, a group composed of 
United Methodist related educational institutions and Conference representa- 
tives . 

We are also proud that the Board of Trustees has now also established a 
second major program at the Institute. This will be the Center for Cross- 
Cultural Educational Ministries. The purpose of this Center will be to 
provide the United Methodist Church with expertise and training for cross- 
cultural and international ministry and evangelism. Plans are to open the 
Center in the summer of 1985. 

Lydia Patterson is the only United Methodist, predominantly Hispanic, 
educational institution remaining in the United States. The South Central 
Jurisdictional Conference affirmed L.P.I. 's strategic and unique mission at 
its 1984 session in Lubbock by recommending that each annual conference 
designate L.P.I, a Missional Priority for 1985-88. We are thankful for this 
strong support from the Church and for the many local churches, groups and 
individuals who have given generously to this ministry over the year. 
Presently, 66% of the budget is met through church gifts. Sam Martinez has 
been i-::.ied Director of a new Office of Development established last fall. 
We are also grateful for the Work Camp groups who visited and worked at 
L.P.I, during last summer. 

You have been a vital part of this educational mission in the past year 
and we look forward to our continued partnership in ministry in the year 
ahead. On behalf of our students and staff, I say, rauchas gracias. 

Ruben Salcido, President 



Louisiana Methodist Children's Home 



Methodist Children's Home (MCH) experienced another year of successful 
service to children and families in 1984. MCH continued an already 
established trend of serving a wide range of needs through an increasingly 
diversified and specialized program. 

As in recent years, the number of children referred to us was large - a 
total of 205. State agencies provided 40% of these referrals while parents 
accounted for 33%. The remaining 27% came by way of ministers, 
psychiatrists and other mental health professionals, and law enforcements 
personnel. 



170 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



During 1984 the MCH Board of Directors approved several additions to 
and refinements of the agency's existing program. These include a campus 
educational center which is currently under construction and an independent 
living program aimed at helping youth adjust to the community as they become 
of age to leave the residential program, Another exciting concept is the 
Family Services division which will offer counseling to families within 
their own homes and thereby prevent breakup of existing family units. This 
program will offer assistance to pastors as they seek to work with troubled 
families. 

MCH received a total operating income of $1,508,976 during 1984. 
Contributions accounted for 26% of this total with 28% coming from interest 
earned by invested funds. The remaining 46% came from payments made on 
behalf of children in care either by families or by state agencies. 

The MCH Board of Directors requests the following action by the 
Louisiana Annual Conference: 

1. The reappointment of Doug Williams, Jr. as Development Director and 
Chaplain. 

2. The election of these persons to board membership with terms 
expiring in 1988.

Methodist Home of New Orleans 



He was five years old and weighed twenty-six pounds. He was Louisiana, 
not Ethiopia. He had big brown eyes, wavy brown hair and a fair complexion 
that seemed untouched by the sun. In fact, he had spent much of his life 
indoors, confined in a wooded cage. 



He was brought to The Methodist Home of New Orleans and his life began 
to change. He was encouraged to walk and talk. A great effort was made to 
find food that would stimulate his appetite and when he left us, 105 days 
later, he had gained about six pounds. More importantly, the once dull 
spark of humanity that was within him had been set aglow. He smiled. 

Unfortunately, his first placement in a foster home was unsuccessful 
and he was returned to The Methodist Home, but thank God, we were there to 
care for him again. He smiled when he came through our door. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 171 



This child is representative of the 289 children that we served in 
1984. We need your support to continue and expand our ministry to abused 
children in Louisiana. 



Conrad Edwards, Superintendent 



Metropolitan Ministries 



If the news media is an acceptable indicator of social trends, 
reporting medical technological advances, analysis of educational practices, 
open discussion of financial assessment and governmental spending on all 
levels, the attention of many of the learned, enlightened, progressive 
citizenry is claimed. However, there is as yet a need for the keen eye, tVie 
listening ear, the available hand to assist those who are slow to climb the 
ladder of societal recognition and financial success. 

Purpose 

Metropolitan Ministries, an organ of Mission of the United Methodist 
Church, offers an opportunity for fulfillment of a conscious need to 
strengthen self esteem through activities maintaining strands of the 
abundant life. There are those who lack adequate finances, marketable 
skills, proper self-discipline or personnel record to meet employment 
demands. To these persons this Agency offers some stability in times of 
critical need. 

Delivery of Service 

Metropolitan Ministries has been engaged in activities that have 
provided some of the basics for living to individuals as well as whole 
family units in time of extreme crisis. This Agency has responded to calls 
for food, clothing, assistance with maintenance of shelter, emergency 
utility assistance (gas, electricity.) In a few cases wherein the situation 
warranted, emergency travel assistance has been provided. Counseling has 
been given individuals relating to the family, the job marriage, and to some 
young people in conflict with the law. The Agency includes within its 
program seminars and workshops to alert interested community members to 
prevalent issues which affect the fulfillment and wholeness of one's life of 
outreach and service. 

Proposal 

The Agency has developed a simple proposal '' Children as Parents'' with 
the intent of sharing in the lives of youth by way of insight and 
preparation for the gigantic task. 

We propose for September 27-28, 1985 an Urban Ministries Workshop to be 
held at First United Methodist Church with Kim Jefferson, Board of Global 
Ministries Department of Urban Ministries as leader. 



172 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Appreciation 

We offer our thanks and appreciation to the Bishop, the District 
Superintendents and all who have shown interest in Metropolitan Ministries, 
as evidence by a contribution of material, talent or finance.

Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital and 
Methodist Health System Foundation 

Since 1968 Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital has offered full 
service acute hospital care, ministering to the physical and spiritual needs 
of patients in the name and spirit of the Great Physician, Jesus Christ. 
Pendleton Memorial is a 313 bed community hospital situated on 22 acres in 
eastern New Orleans. As a non-profit organization, Pendleton Memorial 
Methodist Hospital provided in-patient services to 12,092 patients during 
the last fiscal year. During that tioie 2,071 babies were born at the 
hospital and approximately 20,000 patients visited the Hospital's Emergency 
Department. Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital is served by a medical 
staff of 260 physicians and approximately 1,000 employees. 

Expenditures for last year totaled more than $36 million. Income from 
the United Methodist Churches totaled $7,422 last year. These contributions 
helped provide a part of the $1,200,000 worth of free and part pay care 
which Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital provided last fiscal year. 

As noted in the 1984 Annual Conference report, the hospital is now 
organized as a subsidiary corporation under Methodist Health System 
Foundation. The Foundation Board of Directors includes Ken Schor, Chairman; 
Thomas Giraud, Vice-chairman; Charles McHale, Secretary; Willis Baker, 
Treasurer; Jack Styron; and Lee Lawrence, President. The Foundation, 
functioning as a holding company board, has authorized a number of 
subsidiary ventures, all with the goal of ensuring the continued long-terra 
viability and mission of Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital. 

Operations of the Methodist Psychiatric Pavillion, a subsidiary 
venture, commenced in early 1985 as an interim 18 bed facility opened within 
Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital. Construction has begun on the 36 
bed free-standing Pavilion which is to be completed in December of 1985. 
Located on the eastern end of the hospital campus, Methodist Psychiatric 
Pavilion will provide psychiatric and substance abuse services as well as 
significant outpatient services of a mental health nature. 

Another subsidiary corporation, Hospital Properties, Inc., entered into 
a partnership with the Medical Center of East New Orleans. Hospital 
properties, Inc., has retained the management rights to the nine story MCENO 
office building and is working to develop a number of related services of an 
ambulatory nature to benefit the partnership and hospital and to provide an 
expanded spectrum of community health services. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 173 



Methodist Health Systems Foundation, Pendleton Memorial Methodist 
Hospital and the related subsidiary organizations are developing a number of 
additional programs. In the developmental or planning stages are an 
ambulatory surgery center, free standing minor care clinics, an oncology 
(cancer) treatment center, a preferred provider organization and a cardiac 
rehabilitation program. 

In August a Clergy Orientation Day was held for ministers throughout 
the state of Louisiana. Chaplains Durbin and Nelson arranged for a tour of 
the facility as well as health screening tests. Ministers were advised of 
services available to ministers and family members. 

Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital requests the reappointment of 
Chaplain Paul Durbin as Chaplain and Director of the Department of Pastoral 
Care, and the reappointment of Chaplain Judy Nelson as Associate Chaplain. 

The Pendleton Memorial Methodist Hospital publication Pacemaker 
containing annual report data will be available at the Conference session. 



Lee Lawrence, President 



Peoples* Community Center 

Methodist people of the Louisiana Conference and the connectional 
structure of our church have shared tremendously in our dream to provide 
quality day care service to the many residents of Central City New Orleans. 
That love has expressed itself in several ways: 

(1) Through a growing awareness among our churches across the state of 
our agency as the '' Peoples' Story' ' has been told. 

(2) Conference agencies have supported our efforts to renew and re- 
develop the structural facility. 

(3) Work camp groups from two (2) mid-western universities have come 
to us during the year and assisted us with our ongoing beautifi- 
cation project. 

Despite the economic down-turn conditions in our city presently, our 
enrollment remains steady and is holding well. With a grant from United 
Way, we went on computer in 1984. The results have been quite pleasing and 
satisfactory to our board and the agency in general. 

Our dream is to see Peoples' Methodist become a community center with 
several programs which minister to the needs of God's people in this area. 
With this concept in mind, the Board of Directors has developed long range 
and short range goals and objectives for the agencies which we, with 
enthusiasm, have already begun working on. 

Although the agency encountered during the year problems of a licensing 
and staffing nature, our spirits are very high as we were able to satisfy 
those requirements.

174 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



We are very hopeful for the future of Peoples' Methodist because of the 
dedication of it's staff and Board of Directors who also see the future in 
terms of quality service as well as quality programs. With the help of God 
Almighty we endeavor to continue our upward spiral toward a model daycare 
facility.

Retired Ministers Homes Board, Inc. 



At present the board operates 32 homes and a six unit apartment complex 
with a home under construction in Ruston. This unit will be occupied by Dr. 
and Mrs. Douglas McGuire. They are contributing more than half of the cost. 

In a recent survey nine ministers indicated the need for a home in the 
next five years, twenty over the next ten years and thirty one by the year 
2000. Realistically we know that some of the homes that are currently 
occupied will become available. Based on past experience this will be 
largely offset by ministers or widows who did not anticipate the need of a 
home. It is safe to say that we will need to build at least two homes a 
year for the next fifteen years to meet this increasing need. 

The Board has recently completed a video tape of some of our homes. 
This tape will make an excellent program for any group in your church. The 
tape will be available from your District Superintendent or from the board 
office. We can also provide a speaker. 

During the course of this year we dedicated the home in Vivian occupied 
by Rev. and Mrs. Bob Carter. We also dedicated the home in Hammond occupied 
by Rev. and Mrs. Glenn Messer. 

Why not let us build a retired ministers home in your town? Currently 
the board can build a home if you or your church can raise approximately 
$30,000 , and donate a lot. The board will pay half the cost up to $25,000. 

On consultation with Bishop Walter Underwood the board has decided to 
place a full time executive director in the field. Subsequently, Bishop 
Underwood appointed Rev. James L. Adams to this position. Rev. Adams has 
been chairman of the board for the past fifteen years. The office will be 
set up in Alexandria.

LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 175 



St. Mark's Community Center 



Established in 1909 by the Women's Society of Christian Service, Board 
of Missions, Methodist Church, U.S.A., St. Mark's currently has a staff of 
fifty persons serving an average of four hundred persons each day through 
seven programs and five auxiliary services, each in its own way contributing 
to the agency's mission to provide opportunities for self-development for 
children and families. 

The agency's three ''core 1 ' programs include St. Mark's Street Academy , 
an alternative junior high school for ninety-eight (98) young people who 
have dropped out or been put out of traditional schools; St . 
Mark's Community Day Care Center , serving seventy-five (75) children, aged 
three months to five years, from working families in the Treme neighborhood 
of new Orleans; and the Recreation Program operating evenings, Saturdays, 
and full-time in the summers for an average of eighty children and youth 
each day. 

The other four programs have grown out of needs that became obvious in 
the context of the three core programs. The serious lack of quality child 
care services led to the start of the Day Care Training Program , offering 
child care training and job placement for thirty-five (35) new child care 
workers each year; the Teacher Resource Service (TRS) , a warehouse of free 
classroom materials for teachers and child care workers; and the 
Family Day Care Network , which includes one hundred and thirty (130) 
providers caring in their own homes for a total of approximately five 
hundred (500) children. The extremely high rate of juvenile crime in Treme, 
St. Mark's target community, prompted the inception of the Violent Juvenile 
Offender Program, commonly known as TRAC , Treme Residents Against Crime . 
Funded by the U.S. Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, 
TRAC's purpose is to prevent and reduce juvenile crime by organizing the 
community around intervention strategies. 

Auxiliary services include St. Mark's Camp , used by all of the agency's 
programs as well as many church and community groups throughout the state; 
Youth Employment , offered on a large scale in the summertime and whenever 
opportunities arise; and Child Advocacy , currently focused on achieving the 
reinstatement of Louisiana's child care licensing law and the creation of a 
statewide advocacy organization, ''Agenda for Children.'' Community Outreach 
encompasses a variety of functions, including referrals for child care 
services; providing space for community meetings, workshops, conferences, 
classes, and events; and the periodic distribution of commodity food.

The Spanish American Ministry 



The name of The Spanish American Ministry of New Orleans, is synonymous 
with love, help, action, dignity and compasion. The United Methodist Church 
is providing a special and necessary ministry to the growing Spanish 
Community. 



176 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



The services offered range from food and clothes distribution to 
advocating for better services to the Spanish Community. The means to 
implant lens in the eyes of an eight-year-old child, traumatized because her 
eyes are two different colors, was provided. 

This year in cooperation with the Immigration and Naturalization 
Project of New Orleans, we provided promotion and facilities for classes to 
residents of The United States of America in order to prepare them for the 
citizenship test. 

But all the services we offered depart and converge into one point, to 
show the love of God in action. 

Our congregation has been growing to a fully organized United Methodist 
Church. The regular program of the church includes a Sunday Worship Service, 
a Sunday School, a mid-week Bible Study, a weekly youth meeting, a United 
Methodist Woman's Group, a Senior Citizen group, and we are looking into the 
possibility of a young adult organization as well as a Tithe Club. 
Occasionally special programs during the week are held for children. During 
the summer a Bible Vacation School is offered. 

Thanks to special donations from Munholland United Methodist Church, 
which were designated for the needy, and programming, we were able to have a 
food and blankets distribution during the winter and a three-day program 
led by a Christian professional designed for the family, youth and ladies. 

I have been appointed by the Greater New Orleans Federation of 
Churches as Chairperson for the Hispanic Coalition. I am a member of the 
Commission of the Office for Hispanic Affairs created by Governor Edwin 
Edwards. I was also involved in the Chaplaincy program for the World Fair. 
In working with different organizations the Spanish Ministry is able to find 
new dimensions and possibility of service. 

This year a new van was presented to the Spanish Ministry and it is a 
notable asset for the Spanish Community. Thank you to all who made it 
possible. 

The death of The Rev. Juan Sanflel is an irreparable loss because of 
his leadership and consecration to this Ministry. But the Spanish Ministry 
is bearing the fruits of what he planted and cultivated and can be proved by 
the dedication and responsibility of the members and friends of the church. 

All this work is possible by the contribution of the local churches in 
our Conference. On behalf of The Spanish Ministry, thank you for your 
offerings and love. We are counting on your support. Thank you. 



Marta Sanfiel 



Commission On Religion and Race 

As stated in the Discipline, ?, the primary purpose of the General 
Commission on Religion and Race shall be to challenge the general agencies, 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 177 



institutions, and connectional structures of the United Methodist Church to 
a full and equal participation of the racial and ethnic minority 
constituency in the total life and mission of the church through advocacy 
and by reviewing and moitoring the practices of the entire church so as Co 
further insure racial inclusiveness. ' * 

This understanding of responsibility of the General Commission imposes 
upon the Conference Commission a like interest in racial inclusiveness in 
the conference, district, and local church structures. Thus the monitoring 
of the racial balance of Conference Boards and Agencies and of observance of 
Equal Opportunity Employment practices has been implemented within the 
Louisiana Conference with the last few years. Participation in the program 
will be continued to insure fidelity to our primary purpose. 

In addition, our commission has sought to provide training for district 
directors and local church chairpersons of Religion and Race. Our goal is 
for each church to have an active chairperson \<jho is able and willing to 
promote programs calling for justice and reconciliation. 

Local churches have been encouraged to share interracial activities 
through study groups, athletic leagues, Vacation Church Schools, choir 
exchanges, pulpit exchanges, etc. All of these activities offer 
opportunities for better understanding and acceptance of their races. 

The appointment of pastors across ethnic and racial lines is another 
goal of the commission. While progress in this direction may be slow, it 
will receive a growing emphasis. 

As is clear, racial and ethnic justice and opportunity is at the heart 
of the concern of Religion and Race. 

Rupert D. Coles, Vice-chairman 



7. Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry 

The Conference Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry would like 
to thank the members of the conference for the generous support given to our 
work on college campuses throughout Louisiana. Because of your support we 
have been able to continue ten full time ministries, one new cooperative 
ministry (at Grambling University), and assist in the beginning of a new 
program (at LSUS) on the state's college campuses. Your support likewise 
assists our two church affiliated colleges. Centenary College and Dillard 
University are two of the finest institutions of higher education to be 
found in our country. This is a statement of fact and not merely a hollow 
boast. Their concern for scholastic achievement and nurture of the ' 'whole 
student'' have combined to build a reputation for greatness. We indeed have 
much for which to be proud due to our work on the college campuses in 
Louisiana. 

We are indeed proud to have several Louisiana representatives in key 
leadership positions on our General Board of Higher Education and Ministry. 
Dr. Samuel Debois Cook, President of Dillard University, and Dr. Donald 
Webb, President of Centenary College are members of the University Senate. 



178 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Mr. Charles Tearaer, Vice President of Dillard University is a member of the 
Commission on Black Colleges of the the General Board. Dr. Nancy Carruth is 
serving as the President of the Division of Higher Education of the General 
Board for the current quadrenniam. We know that these persons will 
represent us well in these capacities. 

The Conference Board has recently re-organized its structure in order 
to provide better support teams for our work on your behalf. The board is 
now divided into three divisions: 

Campus Ministry - responsible for guidance and direction of all campus 
ministry work in the conference (continue the structure of three 
committees - financial and legal, program and interpretation, and 
personnel) . 

Colleges and Universities - maintain liason relationship between the 
conference and Centenary, Dillard and related seminaries. 

Career Development - develop and maintain a program of career develop- 
ment in church related vocations. 

In addition this past year we have developed a system for evaluating 
the campus ministry units in the conference. This process was prepared 
cooperatively between the representative of the campus ministry units and 
the conference board. The evaluation will be used to make recommendations 
for programming and funding for each unit. 

Our campus ministry units are likewise holding yearly meetings similar 
to a charge conference in the local church. In this way the district 
superintendent is kept aware of the life and work of the unit, just as is 
done in our local churches. We feel that these decisions will improve our 
ministry and our support. 

The Conference Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry will be in 
the process this year of formulating a proposal for conference funding of a 
capital funds campaign for the campus ministry buildings throughout our 
conference. This step is being taken for three primary reasons: (1) the 
campus ministry units in the Louisiana Annual Conference are owned by the 
Annual Conference (2) the conference funding for campus ministry is 
primarily utilized for staff and program (with little funding available for 
capital improvements), and (3) there is need for major repairs and/or ad- 
ditional facilities on many of the campuses. 

This proposal will come to the next session of the annual conference 
for your consideration. 

Donald C. Cottrill, Chairperson 



Campus Ministers' Report 

The year 1984 has been good for campus ministry. The support of the 
Annual Conference in money, leadership, prayer, and words of encouragement 
are at an all time high. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 179 



Each campus site does ministry in a unique manner. This is an order, 
as each university is different. We range from total commuter campuses to 
half residence to almost total student dormitory living. Our schools are 
very technical with high admission standards to those that have 50% of their 
students in remedial courses. Some schools are 95% white, others 95% black, 
some 13% international students and others 1%. 

The campus ministry units are ecumenical and denominational, served by 
men and women, with some straight from seminary and others close to 
retirement. The tenure of our campus ministers ranges from five months to 
28 years. Our newest cooperative ministry is at Grambling State University 
with a Baptist Minister. Traveling from campus to campus we find ministry 
designed to meet the needs of: worship, study, social life, emotional 
problems, blacks, whites, yellows, browns, reds, faculty, secretaries, 
administrators, university police, married students, children of students. 
Our ministries offer special insight into race relations, social injustice, 
hunger, theology, academics, world peace, politics, and much more. We are 
open to the needs of our campus congregations and mindful of the 
expectations of the conference. 

Our number one need from the local churches is for you to expect your 
young adults to be active participants in campus religious life. We offer 
a few suggestions: 

1. Send the names of your students to the Campus Minister 
(in June before they come). 

2. Follow up by sending church news to the students. 

3. Ask the students how their religious life is progressing while on 
campus . 

4. Pray for your students. 

James E. Wilson, Chairperson 



Centenary College 

The Conference can commemorate the 160th birthday of its College — the 
oldest west of the Mississippi River — with much to acclaim. And much 
still to do! 

It is fitting to salute such age with innovation, and we do: Centenary 
Night! The first evening of Annual Conference is devoted to a celebration 
of the College, and culminates in The Bishop's Awards: to the three 
churches — small, medium, and large — who send the most students here. 

Academically, too, there has been fine innovation this year. 
Centenary's new Master of Business Administration program is unique — and 
successful: its focus is practical, hands-on methods and tools for 
management. The new computer laboratory has been established for 
undergraduates. Dr. Brad McPherson was installed in the Mary Warters Chair 
of Biology, and Dr. Frank Carroll in the Hurley Chair of Music. The faculty 



180 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



is committed to a fresh look at the curriculum, with the needs of the 21st 
Century in mind. 

Environmentally, improvements are obvious. The Haynes Gym enjoyed a 
$300,000-plus remodeling. Refurbishing work — never-ending! — was 
continued on the men's and women's dorms, on the lobbies of Jackson Hall, 
and Sexton and James Dorms. A native plant garden was installed, and the 
Amphitheatre renovated and landscaped. 

The Alumni are invigorated: more and more of the 9000 are involved in 
recruiting, and with a full Class Agent system now operating, support is 
growing. 

Partnership with the Church has never been stronger. The Church 
Council, comprising the Bishop, President, the District Superintendents, and 
lay and ministerial delegates from every District, is a model for the 
nation. January Study Week attracted a record number. ' 'Discover 
Centenary'' brought 50 students to campus. ''Crossroads 85'' this summer 
will bring aspiring church workers. Centenary School of Church Careers is 
recruiting ardently — and its Student Resource Team was busy almost every 
available weekend in churches throughout the state, leading worship, Church 
School and Youth Activities. The Choir sang in twenty-six churches this 
year. 

And for their part, the churches were magnificent: $414,000 in 
support, via the decimal, in 1984, and nearly $100,000 in scholarships! 

Financially, it has been a very difficult year, with necessarily hard 
goals. Our annual fund drive had to set the highest target ever: 
$1,072,000! Our hope (equally high!) is that by June 1st, that goal will 
have been attained, and the budget balanced for the eighth consecutive year. 

Much to acclaim, then! 

But much still to do. In the area of endowment, far to go! For 
health, the College needs many more endowed chairs, programs, facilities; we 
have come far in seven years — to $20 million! — but this is just the 
foundation of Centenary's future. 

But principally, much to do in the area of recruitment! We can serve 
100 more students. Please trust us with your church's sons and daughters, 
and we will do our utmost to be worthy of you, and them.

Every church a paid student'' is still the salvific goal!

Dillard University 

Dillard University continues to stress the importance of liberal 
learning and religious life. 

m 

This year, humanistic concerns have been incorporated in all courses 
for freshmen. The University has come to realize that the goals of liberal 
arts go beyond the transmission of knowledge through a prescribed pattern of 
liberal arts courses. Students now have the opportunity to raise moral and 
ethical questions in all courses. In biology, for example, students address 
moral issues relating to the science of genetics, organ transplants, nuclear 
energy, use of pesticides, and the use of life support facilities for the 
hopelessly ill. 

The University Assembly constitutes another aspect of the University's 
efforts to provide a climate that encourages the liberal educational 
development of students. All freshman and sophomore students are required 
to attend the University Assembly each Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to noon. 

The University Assembly focuses on: (1) the development of humane and 
liberally educated students who have concern for improving the quality of 
human existence and (2) on issues relating to science, the American economy, 
governmental affairs and urban affairs, international affairs, crime and 
drug abuse. 

Most encouraging has been the students' demonstration of interest in 
religious activities on the campus. 

Indeed, the presence of religious life activities on Dillard 
University's campus is evidenced by the students' renewed interests in and 
commitments to ethical and humanistic concerns. Consequently, it is not 
uncommon for a student organization to sponsor an activity which affords 
consideration either to the needy or to the less fortunate citizenry. 
Indicative of the foregoing are activities sponsored by various student 
organizations to yield donations for presentation to neighborhood families 
and non-profit making institutions. Such laudable voluntary events include 
financial contributions, collection of clothing or foodstuffs, and other 
essential commodities. 

Encouragingly, the success of efforts to inculcate genuine Christian 
values in the student body is reflected in their voluntary attendance at 
weekly religious services. The Sunday Worship, the University Bible Study 
Ministry, and Mid-Week Services are among the very active ministries on the 
campus .

182 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Perkins School of Theology 
Southern Methodist University 

The summer of 1984 was productive as Perkins School of Theology at 
S.M.U. received three large gifts and the Jurisdictional Conference voted to 
accept ''Fair Share Goals* * for theological education jointly for Perkins 
and St. Paul School of Theology. An anonymous $1 million gift was received 
to support Bridwell Library operations. Longtime faculty member James 
Seehorn Seneker named Perkins beneficiary of income from a trust in support 
of a Christian education professorship, programming, and scholarships for 
M.R.E. students. A bequest from the estate of Gertrude Thompson has been 
used to establish an endowed fund for M.S.M. students. 

''Fair Share Goals'' are being accepted by Annual Conferences in the 
Jurisdiction for endowments to further strengthen scholarship aid for 
students, to endow the Perkins Intern Program, and to enhance the Perkins 
Continuing Education program. 

With enrollment last Fall at an all-time high of 524 students, Perkins 
commits the highest dollar amounts of all United Methodist seminaries to 
student aid for all purposes, with over $1 million paid out. Tuition 
charges for the typical student enrolled full time were $3,800, with average 
scholarship support of $1,900. These figures do not include fees, room and 
board, books, or personal expenses. 

The Perkins Alumni Loyalty Fund has continued significant growth, with 
a national phonathon and an active campaign among graduates which is 
expected to exceed the 1984-85 goal of $75,000. Four years ago, the drive 
netted just over $29,000. Rev. Kelly Williams, senior pastor at Chaplewood 
United Methodist Church in Houston, is this year's Loyalty Fund chairman. 

In the second year of the new curriculum, reactions have been generally 
positive. The question about time required for graduation from Perkins was 
addressed in a survey showing that 87.5% of Perkins students completed their 
work and graduated within four years. Five persons in this class elected to 
take longer for various reasons, such as our residency program in the 
British Methodist Conference. Eighty percent of our students elect to take 
a full year's internship, explaining the extended time for degree 
completion. 

Joining the staff this year were the Rev. Beverly Sawyer from Little 
Rock, Arkansas, Associate Dean for Community Life, and Mr. Jim Lewis from 
Dallas, Director of Perkins Development. Dr. Stanley J. Menking from Drew 
University became Director of Continuing Education and the Doctor of 
Ministries program, and Dr. David Maldonado from Arlington, Associate 
Professor of Church and Society, accepted that faculty appointment in early 
1985. A specialist in gerontology, who has worked particularly with aging 
in the Hispanic family, he is Chair of the Texas Governor's Coordinating 
Council on Health Delivery Systems for the Aging. Dr. Richard P. 
Heitzenrater was named Albert Cook Outler Professor of Wesley Studies 
effective September 1. In addition he continues as Director of the Bridwell 
Library Center for Methodist Studies. 

Active worship life in the community, with three regular, daily 
services, and the second year of formation groups, to which each first-year 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 183 



student is assigned, have enriched the Perkins community. In addition to 
the study program, an outstanding series of convocations and workshops have 
centered on ''The Practice of Ministry.'' Emphasis weeks for Women, for 
Hispanics, the Black Seminarians, and International Students have been added 
dimensions to training for the ministry at Perkins. 



Dean James E. Kirby 



8. Communications Committee 

The Communications Committee has offered guidance and support to the 
communications program of the Annual Conference, through the Council on 
Ministries, its parent body, and the Director of Communications. 

The Committee operates out of four sub-committees: Electronic Media, 
Print Media, Radio and Communication Training. 

In addition to The Louisiana United Methodist , video productions have 
been provided for the Conference Resource Center and districts. A new radio 
package will soon be produced for the Conference as well. 

District workshops on church newsletters and electronic media have been 
held, with more scheduled for the coming months. 

The committee is looking forward to a greater use of television in the 
Conference, with production churches furnishing programming, along with 
Conference produced products, for placement in a number of cities in the 



state. 



Grayson Watson, Chairperson 



Media Resources Committee 



The Media Resources Committee has added a number of filmstrips, films 
and video taped programs to the Resource Center this year. 

In addition, they have set the membership fees for the Center as 
follows: Church membership up to 199 - $10.00; 200 to 499 - $15.00; 500 to 
999 - $20.00; and over 1000 - $25.00. 

A review and updating of the Center is underway, under the direction of 
Mrs. Carolyn J. Powell, Resource Center Coordinator. 

With the use of UPS as a delivery source, resources have arrived on 
time and been returned with few problems. The committee has also provided 
for insurance on all films, filmstrips and video tapes sent out. 

The new Resource Center Catalog has been sent to each local church. 
Additional copies may be purchased for $2.50 each. 

Lou Montgomery, Chairperson 



184 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Board of Laity and Conference Lay Leader's Report 



Please extend my apologies to the Board for my inability to be present 
at this year's Annual Conference. A series of very important matters has 
kept me from being able to leave the Capitol even for a short while. 

I have entered into an agreement with Dr. Ron Sunderland for the 
purpose of conducting laity training events around the Conference. The 
first will be for the Baton Rouge-Lafayette District and will be conducted 
at the First United Methodist Church of New Iberia on the evening of June 21 
and all day June 22. For further information on registration, you may call 
the office of the First United Methodist Church in New Iberia. Enrollment 
will be limited and a $5 fee will be collected to provide lunch on Saturday. 
The program will be designed to instruct lay people how to become more 
effective ministers in local churches. Dr. Sunderland is an individual who 
possesses the highest professional capabilities and provides a very rich, 
meaningful program. There will be additional sessions conducted in the 
Baton Rouge-Hammond District on July 26 and 27, in the Alexandria District 
on October 18 and 19, and the Lake Charles District on October 25 and 26. I 
have also arranged for the conducting of a Lay Speaking School on November 8 
and 9. This will be held in Baton Rouge and the location and other 
arrangements will be announced at a later time. 

We have received a letter from Kay Madden indicating they have $2,800 
for a scholarship program at Centenary. I will continue to encourage each 
of you to take necessary steps to bring the needs of education to our local 
congregations. 

Mr. Woody Atkinson will make the 1000 Club report and presentation of a 
check on Wednesday morning. Woody has also made his intentions known of his 
retirement. He has graciously agreed to stay in this position until we can 
find a person or persons willing to assume this important responsibility. I 
wish to commend Woody for his untiring efforts which have resulted in the 
formation of new Churches throughout our Annual Conference. 

The Board of the Laity met during Annual Conference under the 
leadership of Vice Conference Lay Leader, Mary Adell Compton. Our 
Conference Lay Leader for 1985-86 was nominated by secret ballot. Nominated 
was Hubert Blanchard of Sulphur, Louisiana. 

The death of Mr. John Trotter, Secretary-Treasurer of the Board of 
Laity was announced. Funeral services were set for June 6, at First United 
Methodist Church of New Iberia. 

I am excited with the potential that our laity training program offers 
and I'm confident that many will find these sessions rewarding. 

Richard Baker, Conference Lay Leader 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 185 



Ethnic Minority Local Church Task Force 

This year marks the completion of the 1981-84 quadrennium, ' 'Developing 
and Strengthening the Ethnic Minority Local Church. 1 * Plans are underway to 
launch the new thrust of 1985-88, ' * Developing and Strengthening The Ethnic 
Minority Local Church: For Witness and Missions.' ' This new thrust 
continues the unfinished task of providing resources, recruitment, 
leadership development, training and support for Ethnic Minority Local 
Churches and seeks to involve the total church in its implementation. 

The Conference apportionment for 1984 was $72,500. The total amount 
raised was $68,859; $50,562 was sent to the General Church for distribution 
to General Boards and agencies, and $18,297 was retained for use in our 
Conference. With a $2,000 balance from the previous year, a total of 
$20,297 was made available for use in the Conference. 

The Conference Committee on the Ethnic Minority Local Church met in 
February and approved $13,500 to be used as follows: 

Spanish Ministry, New Orleans $ 4,000.00 

St. Paul United Methodist Church, Monroe . . . 1,500.00 
(Church School Program) 

Seminary Students 3,000.00 

Missional Priority Program Events 4,000.00 

Missional Priority Administrative Expenses . . 1,000.00 

TOTAL $13,500.00 

The remaining requests will be considered at the next meeting of the 
Committee. 

Funding For The 1981 - 84 Quadrennium 

I. Apportioned for each year (4) $72,500 $290,000.00 

II. Reported by churches 270,394.83 

III. Sent to General Church 191,637.00 

IV. Retained for use in Conference 78,757.83 

Funds retained by the Conference during this period (1981-84) were used 
for Local Church renovations and programming, community centers, 
metropolitan ministries, bi-district church school program, and Conference 
Ethnic Minority Local Church Training Events. 

Much has been done in the last four years to strengthen the Ethnic 
Minority Local Church, but the unfinished task is still before us. The 
tasks are bigger and harder to accomplish, but God has made us stronger and 
has promised to sustain us and see us through. 

Let us then move expeditiously into this new quadrennium with PRAYER, 
WISDOM, VISION, VIGOR, and HOPE as we meet the challenge of "Developing and 
Strengthening the Ethnic Minority Local Church: For Witness and Mission.'' 

Reverend Roger D. Lathan 
Director of Special Ministries 



186 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Louisiana Interchurch Conference 

On February 20, 1970, the signers of the Covenant which constitutes the 
Louisiana Interchurch Conference said, ''In joyful response we do hereby 
constitute ourselves into the Louisiana Interchurch Conference as a 
contemporary instrument of our obedience.'' The recurring question, since 
the signing of the document, and today is, ''What does it mean to be the 
Church living in obedience to the will of God?'' We who have been a part of 
the Louisiana Interchurch Conference recognize that a part of our obedience 
is to share our faith, care for one another, and be concerned about the 
state and world in which we live. Today we rejoice and celebrate that we 
have here in our state an instrument of ecumenism as a sign of God's 
reconciling love, actively working to enhance our unity and to provide a 
channel through which we can witness to our state of the church's commitment 
to peace and justice. 

This past year has been a year in which the churches in Louisiana have 
grown in their understanding of each other and in realizing that they share 
a common faith. Also, they have reached out in significant ways together to 
witness concerning God's will in the state of Louisiana. 

A few highlights of this past year were: 

1. Dr. Michael Kinnaraon led the Board of Directors in an exciting study 
of our common, apostolic faith as seen in ''Baptism, Eucharist, and 
Ministry. ' * 

2. The Louisiana Interchurch Conference arranged for Mr. Charles 
''Chuck'' Colson, the Watergate figure, to speak to a joint session 
of the Louisiana Legislature on ways to reduce spending for 
Corrections. 

3. The Louisiana Interchurch Conference sponsored the Children of War 
Tour in New Orleans. 

4. The Louisiana Interchurch Conference worked to strengthen Family 
Life in Louisiana by sponsoring a Family Life Seminar, and promoted 
the statewide observance of ''Celebrate Family Week.'' 

5. The Louisiana Interchurch Conference improved the services of our 
Institutional Chaplains by conducting seminars and workshops for 
them. 

6. The Louisiana Interchurch Conference produced and sent out the 
Lectionary Television Programs. 

In addition to the above, representatives and or the Executive Director 
worked in the following ways In the state. 

Worked with legislature committees to restructure the juvenile 
system in Louisiana. 

Served as a member of the Board of the Louisiana Cancer and Health 
Group. 






LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 187 



Attended the meetings of the National Conference of Christians and 
Jews . 

Served on the Board of Directors of the Louisiana Survival 
Coalition. 

Helped to organize community assistance for public education. 

Secured a permit from the Federal Communications Commission for a 
radio station at the State Penitentiary. 

Worked for the organizing of a Baton Rouge Federation of Churches. 

Participated in Peace Sunday Observance in New Orleans. 

Developed Week of Prayer for Christian Unity services. 

Represented the churches before legislature committees on Child 
Abuse, Criminal Justice, and Adult Trust Fund. 

The Interchurch Conference does not have and does not seek an identity 
of its own. It is an instrument of the member Judicatories. The Conference 
has been able to render significant services because it has had the support 
and cooperation of the judicatory heads, clergy, and lay persons across the 
state. We express Je -p appreciation to all of you who have given support to 
the work of the Conference through your prayers, your participation, your 
gifts, and your service. 



James L. Stovall 
Executive Director 






Conference Youth Team 

The year of 1984 was one of transition for the Conference. Rev. 
Patterson Culligan's return to a local parish left behind a very good 
program. He is to be commended for the fine work he has done. Youth 
Ministries in Louisiana will long bear the imprint of his diligent work. 

Dr. J. Marion Braden became the Director of Education Ministries. 
Under this umbrella the Youth Ministries now resides. 

Rather than recount what has happened, let us look at what is ahead. 

1. One of the discoveries our delegation made at the Jurisdictional 
Youth Convocation in March, 1985, was that our titles and acronyms 
do not correspond to that of the General Church. Therefore we 
propose a name change from Conference Youth (CYT) to Conference 
Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) and District Youth Team (DYT) 
to District Council on Youth Ministries (DYCM) . We believe that 
this will -lake for clarity and consistency. 






188 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 

2. Dates for the coming year are: 

June 6, 7, 8 - District Council on Youth Ministries (DCYM) 
Training 

August 1, 2, 3 - Conference Council on Youth Ministries (CCYM) 
Training 

October 5 - Fall Convocation 

November 8, 9, 10 - Junior High Retreat 

February 14, 15, 16 - Senior High Retreat 

March 14, 15, 16 - YSF North 

March 21, 22, 23 - YSF South 

3. The thrust of Youth Ministries is making a deliberate shift toward 
resourcing and equipping local, sub-district, and district youth 
ministries. To this end special training will be offered 
throughout the year for those professionals and volunteers working 
in youth ministries. An equal thrust will be made to enable youth 
to be full participants in the development of youth ministries at 
every level. 

4. To accomplish the former, a special study will be made this year 
of the concept and structure of a Youth Annual Conference. 

Dr. John Braden 



B. REPORTS OF BOARDS OF MINISTRY 
BOARD OF DIACONAL MINISTRY 



The Board of Diaconal Ministry works to interpret the meaning of 
diaconal ministry to the church, to enlist persons for diaconal careers, to 
counsel and guide persons in the process of education for certification and 
consecration, to annually review and renew professional certification, and 
to provide on-going support services for all persons in non-clergy careers 
in the church to assure responsible conditions of employment. 

Several board members have attended training sessions presented by the 
Division of Diaconal Ministries to understand the new legislation passed by 
General Conference. Key developments are in the policies for employment of 
Diaconal Ministers. Churches employing Diaconal Ministers are advised to 
follow the procedures in Discipline paragraphs 315-318. 

Serving as an advocate for lay persons employed by churches has been a 
need this year. New federal government legislation requires the local 
church to pay social security on all non-ordained employees. Several 






LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 189 



churches are still in violation with the federal law in this issue. All 
churches with professional educators, musicians, etc. are reminded that 
provision for continuing education funds should be included in church 
budgets for these staff persons along with the minister. 

The Board challenges each local church to seek a person to be recruited 
for a church-related vocation, either ordained or diaconal. Vocational 
recruitment should become a priority with each minister of the conference. 

Plans are being developed to present information to the districts this fall 
regarding the diaconal ministry and church related vocational recruitment. 

Persons who wish to receive scholarship assistance from the Board must 
be officially enrolled with the board before attending classes. A new 
system of mentors has been established for the board in guiding persons in 
progress toward certification and consecration. Registration forms may be 
obtained from Mrs. Barbara Einsel, Associate Registrar. 

Applications for candidacy must be received before July 1 to count as a 
full year related to the 2-4 years of service required for certification 
and/or consecration. 

Applications for renewal of certification and consecration with 
evaluations must be received by the registrar before December 31st each 
year. 

The Louisiana Conference is proud to have Centenary College as one of 
three colleges in the nation with a Christian Education program accredited 
by the National Division of Diaconal Ministry as meeting the standards for 
part of the academic studies for certification as an Associate in Christian 
Education. 

The New Orleans Bi-District Black Education Project has continued to be 
funded by the National Ethnic Minority Fund through the Division of Diaconal 
Ministry. However, the program will soon be reorganized as national funding 
has been greatly reduced. 

The following persons are recommended by the Board for renewal of their 
certification and/or consecration as appropriate:

BOARD OF ORDAINED MINISTRY 

The Louisiana Conference Board of Ordained Ministry has had a busy and 
profitable year. Record keeping, seminars, interviews, awarding grants and 
scholarships, visiting candidates and students in seminary, board and 
committee meetings, license to preach schools, pastors' school, and 
monitoring the progress of those preparing for ministry in The United 
Methodist Church claimed much of our time and interest as a Board during the 
past year. 

Three of our committees are submitting written reports to be included 
in the 1985 Pre-Conference Report booklet. As Chairman of the Board of 
Ordained Ministry I would like to express my genuine appreciation to the 
Bishop and his Cabinet and to the members of this Board for their 
cooperation. The spirit of collegiality which we have enjoyed has made our 
work much easier. 



Alfred L. Norris, Chairperson 



192 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Committee On Caring And Counseling 

The committee on Caring and Counseling makes the following 
recommendations to the 1985 Session of the Louisiana Annual Conference: 

1. That in counsel with the Board of Pensions a Conference date be set for 
the Pre-retirement Seminar in 1986, for all ministers who are 
considering retirement within the next five years. 

2. That each District Committee would continue to serve as Support Groups 
among ministers and their families. These support Groups are to serve 
as contacts for ministers and/or their family members who feel the need 
for direction or the simple sharing of difficulty, personal or 
professional. 

3. That ministers seeking guidance beyond the capabilities of the Support 
Group should contact a professional psychologist or psychiatrist within 
the district area who will have already voluntarily offered themselves 
to this service, and have agreed to serve professionally as closely 
within the financial range of United Methodist Hospitalization as 
possible. Each District Council on Ministries is asked to assist this 
committee by recommending at least two qualified psychologists or 
psychiatrists within their districts to serve as these professional 
counselors.

Transfers From Other Denominations 

Those seeking a Conference relationship from another denomination shall 
meet with the District Superintendent and the District Committee on 
Ministry, who will inquire with them according to Para. 425 and 426, and if 
recommended for appointment shall assign a supervising pastor to the person. 
The person must serve under appointment from ''Other Denomination'' for one 
Conference year during which time the person is encouraged to begin the 
study of United Methodist History, Doctrine, and Policy. The independent 
courses of study are given through the Divison of Ordained Ministry, P. 0. 
Box 871, Nashville, Tennessee 37202. The cost is about $50.00 per unit. 
This study and any other educational requirement must be complete before 
beginning the two-year Board guided program toward full connection. 

When the person seeking a Conference relation has served under 
appointment for one Conference year, has suitable credentials according to 
Para. 426.3, and has met the educational requirements (Para. 415, 416), 
he/she must be recommended in writing on the basis of a 3/4 majority vote of 
the District Committee on Ministry (Para. 414.3) to the Conference Board of 
Ordained Ministry at least 90 days prior to Annual Conference. This allows 
time for them to meet the requirements of Probationary status on the same 
track as others. The Board of Ordained Ministry guides them in the 
fulfillment of Para. 414.4 and following. 



William Peeples, Chairperson 
Robert L. Burgess, Registrar 



Committee on Continuing Education 

Since the time that General Conference mandated continuing education 
for clergy under appointment, the Board of Ordained Ministry has worked in 
co-operation with other boards and bodies to insure the availability of 
events where those requirements can be met. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 195 



In Louisiana, we require that each minister under appointment receive 
at least two Continuing Education Units per calendar year, and that this be 
verified by the District Superintendent at the Charge Conference. We also 
remind the clergy that they are to have entered into an evaluation and 
assessment program with their Pastor Parish Relations Committee which can 
give guidance to the continuing education which they need. Many have done 
this while many more have not. 

At the present time there are many opportunities for continued growth 
and education, which means that no minister should be having difficulty in 
receiving their required two units. In addition, the conference strongly 
recommends that each local church have money in their budget to assist the 
minister in both their participation in continuing education experiences and 
in the acquisition of new books. We are grateful to the leadership which 
Bishop Underwood has given to this area of concern. Upon coming to 
Louisiana he made it clear that each District Superintendent is to plan 
events for their district, and already our districts have offered some very 
fine programs. 

Under Bishop Underwood's leadership, a special task force was formed 
which will provide eight continuing education events beginning in September 
of this year with a program on time management. The dean for this year's 
Pastors School, to be held at Centenary College July 8-11, is Marie 
Williams. We are pleased to announce that our main teacher for that event 
is our own Bishop Underwood. During the year the Committee on Continuing 
Education has worked with several of the districts, with Centenary College, 
and with other Boards and Institutions to provide events for Continuing 
Education. 

Our two concerns which need to be lifted up before this Annual 
Conference are these: To remind the pastor and the Pastor Parish Relations 
Committee that they need to enter into a covenant relationship for the 
purpose of assessment, goal setting and evaluation; and to remind the local 
church that if we require continuing education on the part of the clergy 
then it is important to support this by providing an amount in their budget 
to help offset the cost. If you have questions regarding an event, contact 
the chairperson of this committee.

C. REPORTS OF FINANCIAL & ADMINISTRATIVE BOARDS 
CONFERENCE COUNCIL ON FINANCE AND ADMINISTRATION 



The churches of Louisiana made a good record in the financial 
support they gave during 1984. With grateful appreciation to the laity 
and clergy of the Conference for their faithful stewardship, the Council 
on Finance and Administration submits the following report for Conference 
action. 



196 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Report No. I 

1. We recommend the observance of the following special days with offer- 
ings: 

Christian Education Sunday September 8, 1985 

Louisiana United Methodist Foundation Month September, 1985 

World Communion Sunday October 6, 1985 

Good Samaritan Offering November 24, 1985

One Great Hour of Sharing March 9, 1986 

Good Samaritan Offering March 23, 1986 

World Order Sunday May 18, 1986 

Youth Service Fund May 25, 1986 

2. The Council recommends a continued emphasis by all churches of Advance 
Specials, both of the General Advance and of Conference Specials, 
requesting, however, that all churches pay in full the World Service 
and Conference Benevolences apportionment before appropriating funds 
for second-mile projects. 

3. Each pastoral charge is asked to continue support of Western Methodist 
Assembly at Mt. Sequoyah, Arkansas, with a goal of $20 per pastoral 
charge. Each district is to raise the amount on the basis of the total 
number of charges in the district and mail to the Conference Office of 
Financial Affairs. 

4. We recommend that the Louisiana Moral and Civic Foundation be granted 
the opportunity to present its cause to the local church and community. 

5. It is recommended that the Louisiana National Bank, American Bank, and 
the Baton Rouge Bank of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, be designated as the 
principal depositories for funds of the Louisiana Annual Con- 
ference. Other banks across the state are to be used for interest- 
bearing accounts. Authority to open accounts is given to the Confer- 
ence Director of Financial Affairs/Treasurer and the President of the 
Council on Finance and Administration of the Louisiana Conference. 
Authorized signatures on the accounts and deposit boxes are to be: 
Conference Director of Financial Affairs/Treasurer, President of Coun- 
cil on Finance and Administration, or Executive Director of the Council 
on Ministries. 

6. The Council has contracted with Reginald H. Pulliam, Certified Public 
Accountant of the firm Reginald H. Pulliam of Baton Rouge, to audit the 
books of the Conference Treasurer. The Council expects to receive from 
the accountant an audit report for the year ending December 31, 1984, 
before the June 1985 session of the Annual Conference. 

7. The Council recommends the continuation of the system of apportionments 
on the decimal plan (see Conference rules). 

8. We recommend that the pastoral charge consider an amount of $4,200 for 
Pastor's Travel Allowance for 1985 and $3,000 for utilities expense for 
each minister. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 197 



9. We recommend that the local churches pay an amount up to $1,500 on the 
moving expense of each minister by the new church to which the minister 
is appointed. 

10. We remind the ministers of the Annual Conference who will move to 
another charge that they are to accept salary and expense only through 
May 31, 1985, from the charge they are presently serving. All June 
salary expense will be paid by the new charge. 

11. In order to comply with the federal income tax regulations, we 
recommend that the utilities and other housing expenses on the 
Conference Directors' residences and the district parsonages be 
considered a part of their salaries as "Housing Allowance."

World Service and Conference Benevolences are broken down as follows: 

General World Service $602,000 76.20% 

Conference Benevolences $188,000 23.80% 

4. The Secretary of the Annual Conference shall serve as the Editor of the 
Conference Journal and the Editor is authorized to eliminate detailed 
financial and audit reports from the Journal, including instead a 
statement indicating where the detailed report is filed and to condense 
all reports wherever possible. 

5. The Annual Conference grants permission to Centenary College and 
Dillard University to make an appeal for every church in the conference 
to send a "paid student" to the colleges. 

6. The Conference Treasurer is authorized to pay $8,000 from the District 
Superintendent's Fund for expense of Cabinet Meetings and up to $1,000 
for telephone calls involving appointments. Each district shall estab- 
lish a District Council on Finance and Administration composed of four 
lay persons and three ministers. The District Superintendent, Confer- 
ence, Jurisdictional, and General Conference representatives of the 
Council on Finance and Administration within the bounds of the district 
shall be ex-officio members. Every consideration should be given to 
ethnic minority representation. The Treasurer of the Conference is 
authorized to pay from the District Superintendent's Fund to the Pen- 
sion Fund an amount for each District Superintendent to meet the 
General Board of Pensions requirement. 

7. We recommend that each district provide at least half-time secretarial 
help for the District Superintendent from funds made available from the 
district budget. The Annual Conference requires that copies of the 
annual budget and audit for each district be mailed to the Conference 
Treasurer for the Council not later than January 25 following the 
fiscal year. 

8. The compensation of all the District Superintendents shall be equal 
throughout the Conference. Since District Superintendents are ap- 
pointed by the Bishop as officers of the Conference, their salary, 
travel allowance, utilities allowance, professional expenses, and one- 
half of the Conference insurance premium shall be paid by the Annual 
Conference. We recommend the following income to be paid the District 
Superintendents from the District Superintendent's Fund (see Conference 
Rules for the rule concerning salary): base auto allowance - $3,000; 
utilities allowance - $3,000; an amount not to exceed $3,300 for travel 
expense, to be drawn by voucher; and an amount not to exceed $2,400 to 
be drawn by voucher and used for professional expenses to cover the 
expense of Pastor's School, Minister's Week, Bishop's Week, Annual 
Conference, Continuing Education and other expenses that the District 
Superintendent incurs in carrying out the responsibilities of the 
office. The Conference Treasurer shall pay one-half of the Conference 
Group Insurance for each District Superintendent. 

9. Each Council, Board, Commission, Committee, etc. of the Conference 
receiving funding from the Conference shall designate one person, other 
than the chairperson, as the Finance Officer. The Finance Officer 



200 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



shall keep for that board or agency a current record of financial 
transactions involving the budget receipts and expenditures for that 
body. 

The Finance Officer shall receive all vouchers from members and shall 
approve and submit same to the Conference Treasurer. The vouchers must 
be specific and in detail and be accompanied by the appropriate 
receipts, and must bear the signed approval of the Finance Officer. 
The Finance Officer shall in turn submit them to the Conference 
Treasurer within three weeks. In order to assist the Conference 
Treasurer to close out the books and set up books for a new fiscal 
year, all Finance Officers shall submit final vouchers of said board 
and agency by December 20, 1985. 

Louisiana Annual Conference Official Voucher Policy for Conference 
Boards and Agencies: 

Travel 

Within the State of Louisiana - Travel Expense for Conference Boards 
and Agencies is set at a maximum of 15 cents per mile. When three or 
more members are traveling together, a maximum of 18 cents per mile 
will be paid. Regardless of the mode of travel used, the maximum of 15 
cents per mile will still apply. 

Beyond the state, the most economical mode of travel must be used. Air 
travel must be supported by the air ticket stub. 

Lodging and Meals 

Reimbursement for lodging expenses will be made for the actual amount 
of expenses incurred. Moderately priced hotel or motel accommodations 
are suggested. An itemized bill must accompany the request for reim- 
bursement. Reimbursement will be made for meals for the actual expense 
incurred, but not for entertainment or room service. Any meals 
exceeding $5 must be supported by receipts. The maximum per diem for 
lodging and meals will be $50. 

Exceptions to the policy may be made only by the Executive Committee of 
the C.F.A. 

10. All institutions and agencies receiving funds from the Annual Confer- 
ence are required to submit a financial statement at the end of each 
calendar year (Paragraph 708.4). A list of all investments and the 
returns therefrom shall be submitted annually (Paragraph 708). The 
financial statements and investment informaton shall be sent to the 
Conference Treasurer for the Council no later than January 25 following 
the fiscal year. 

11. A balance at the close of the year in the Conference Benevolence Budget 
of any Conference Board or Agency will be placed in the Conference 
Benevolences Budget for the next year. The Annual Conference shall 
continue to place in the Contingency Fund of the Annual Conference all 
interest from the invested funds of the different Conference Boards and 
Agencies. The Council shall use the Investment Committee of the 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 201 



Louisiana United Methodist Foundation to assist in the investment of 
Conference Funds. The Conference Treasurer and the President of the 
Conference Council on Finance and Administration shall continue to 
serve on the Investment Committee of the Louisiana United Methodist 
Foundation. Local churches and Conference Institutions shall consider 
using the Foundation for the investment of their funds. 

12. We recommend that the Louisiana Annual Conference Wesley Foundation be 
given basic support by a decimal item to be apportioned to the churches 
of the Conference. Amounts of the funds to be given to each Wesley 
Foundation will be determined by the Board of Higher Education and 
Campus Ministry. With approval of the appropriate District Superinten- 
dents and District Councils on Finance and Administration, local Wesley 
Foundations may solicit additional funding from churches within the 
District/Districts nearest their geographic location. Should a local 
church give additional funds to the Wesley Foundation, that church must 
also have paid 100% of their apportionment to World Service and to 
Wesley Foundation the previous year. Otherwise, the Wesley Foundation 
must give those funds to the Conference Board of Higher Education and 
Campus Ministry as payment toward that church f s apportionment. A 
report must be made by the Wesley Foundation to the District Superin- 
tendent and the District Council on Finance and Administration of any 
churches* giving such funds so as to assure 100% payment of the World 
Service and Wesley Foundation apportionments of the local church. 

13. We call to the attention of the churches the changes recently made in 
the Social Security Law which will significantly affect ministers' 
spendable income and we recommend that the Pastor Parish Relations 
Committee and Administrative Boards be sensitive to this change in 
Social Security cost to self-employed persons when salaries are esta- 
blished in the future.

BOARD OF PENSIONS 
Report No. 1 

A. MINISTERS RESERVE PENSION FUND (MRPF) 
We recommend: 

1. That the funded annuity rate for 1986 be set at $215.00 per service 
year. Benefits to surviving spouses of ministers shall be 70% of 
the annuity rate. 

2. That there be apportioned to the charges of the Louisiana Annual 
Conference the amount of $700,000 to be pro-rated on the Conference 
Decimal . 

3. Total past service liability (prior to 1986) amounts to 
$11,879,336 and our 1986 payment, based on a sixteen year amorti- 
zation, is set at $1,320,624 to be funded as follows: 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Conference Apportionments $700,000 

Interest income from Woolworth Foundation, 

Pension Crusade Funds, and other sources. . $620,624 

4. In the event that a church is delinquent in its apportioned pension 
payment, the amount shall be charged against the annuity account of 
the minister serving at the time of such delinquency and shall be 
deducted from his/her annuity claim at the time of that minister's 
retirement or prior decease. Ministers who have claims against 
their pension credits because of non-payment for service in prior 
years may pay the rate due during those years, plus 6 1/2% interest 
compounded annually, and upon payment in full, shall be eligible for 
pension credit and benefits for those years of service. 

B. THE MINISTERIAL PENSION PLAN (MPP) 
We recommend : 

1. That participants shall be all ministerial members of the Louisiana 
Annual conference and local pastors under episcopal appointment to a 
charge. 

2. That Participants Plan Compensation is the sum of: Cash Salary 
received from church-related sources; Housing Allowance, or when a 
parsonage is provided, 20% of the cash salary as the approximate 
value of that parsonage; and any tax-deferred annuity program. 

3. That the church's contribution base be set at 12% of the 
Denominational Average Compensation (DAC) as determined annually by 
the General Board of Pensions (the 1985 DAC is $20,726.00). 
However, if a participant's compensation falls below the DAC, the 
participant's salary paying unit shall pay 12% of actual 
compensation and the CPP shall make a special allocation so that the 
contribution credits will be based on the DAC. 

4. Contributions for each participant shall be paid directly by the 
paying unit to the General Board of Pensions, 1200 Davis Street, 
Evanston, IL 60201. 

5. Any local church that becomes delinquent in payment will have until 
September 20th of the following year to satisfy payments. 

6. Participants shall contribute 3% of Plan Compensation to the MPP on 
a regular basis with remittances made directly to the General Board 
of Pensions. This may be done in either of two ways; 

a. The minister may send his personal check, along with the 
General Board remittance form, directed to his regular 
account. 

b. The minister may have his employer make direct deposits (up 
to 15% of cash salary) in a tax-deferred annuity account, in 
accordance with Federal Government regulations (further 
information concering the tax-deferred deposit plan may be 
obtained from The General Board of Pensions, 1200 Davis 
Street, Evanston, IL 60201). 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 203 



C. THE COMPREHENSIVE PROTECTION PLAN (CPP) 

We recommend: 

1. That participants shall all be ministerial members of the Louisiana 
Annual Conference, and local pastors under episcopal appointment, 
who are receiving at least the equivalent of the Conference 
equitable salary. Part-time ministers, probationary members 
appointed to attend school, and certain members on sabbatical leave 
may become participants under special arrangements. 

2. That the churches contribute, on behalf of each participant, an 
amount equal to 4.4% of the actual compensation plus 20% housing up 
to a DAC maximum and make remittances directly to the General Board 
of Pensions in conjunction with MPP payments. 

3. Disability benefits: 

a. A monthly disability benefit will be payable to the participants 
equal to 40% of the DAC. 

b. The church contribution to the MPP on behalf of the participants 
shall be continued from the CPP. 

4. The Death Benefit Program (DBP) Plan C shall be continued with funds 
from the Conference Pension Program. This supplement to the CPP 
provides the following benefits: 

a. Minister - The benefit is 225% of the DAC ($46,633.50 for 1985) 
if death occurs before age 47. It decreases 7 1/2% annually to 
no less than 60% of the DAC at age 68 and remaining thus until 
retirement. At retirement the benefit becomes 30% of DAC 
($6,217.80 for 1985.) 

b. Spouse - Coverage in the event of the death of a spouse (minister 
surviving) is 15% of the DAC ($3,108.90 for 1985.) This applies 
to both active and retired. In the event of the death of a 
surviving spouse the beneficiary receives 10% of the DAC 
($2,072.60 for 1935.) 

c. Children - In the event of the death of a child who is less than 
19 years, the participant receives $1,500. 

d. Other dependent benefits - Information for children's educational 
and/or disability benefits may be obtained from Dr. J. J. 
Caraway, Conference Director of Financial Affairs, 527 North 
Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA 70802, Phone - (504) 346-1646. 

D. COMPREHENSIVE MAJOR MEDICAL BENEFIT PROGRAM 
We recommend : 

1. That the Conference Board of Pensions be authorized to act for the 
Louisiana Conference in providing hospitalization and medical 
expense group insurance for the ministers and full time emloyees of 
the churches and institutions. 

2. That changes may be made in the carrier of the program between 
sessions of the Annual Conference by the Conference Board of 
Pensions with approval of the Council on Finance and Administration 
and the Cabinet.

C. Resolution Relating to Rental/Housing Allowances for Retired or 
Disabled Ministers of this Conference. 

WHEREAS, the religious denomination known as The United Methodist 
Church has and functions through Ministers of the Gospel who are duly 
ordained or licensed; and 

WHEREAS, the practice of The United Methodist Church is to provide a 
parsonage or a rental allowance as part of the gross compensation for each 
of its active ordained or licensed ministers; and 

WHEREAS, pensions paid to retired ordained or licensed ministers of The 
United Methodist Church are considered as deferred compensation and are paid 
to said retired ordained or licensed ministers in consideration of previous, 
active service and disability benefits are considered payments in lieu of 
compensation for active service; and 

WHEREAS, the Internal Revenue Service has recognized that the Louisiana 
Annual Conference is the appropriate organization to designate a 
housing/rental allowance for retired ordained or licensed ministers who are 
members of this Conference; 



208 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



WHEREAS, the disabled minister has the same legal relationship to an 

Annual Conference as does the retired minister and, thus, this Annual 

Conference is also the appropriate organization to designate a 

housing/rental allowance for a disabled ordained or licensed minister who is 
a member of this Conference; 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: 

a. An amount equal to 100% of the pension payments received by a retired 
minister, or 100% of the disability benefit payments received by a 
disabled minister, during the current year be and is hereby designated 
as a rental/housing allowance respectively for each retired or disabled 
ordained or licensed minister of The United Methodist Church who is or 
was a member of the Louisiana Annual Conference at the time of his or 
her retirement or disability; 

b. The pension or disability payment to which this rental/housing 
allowance applies shall be the pension or disability payment resulting 
from all service of such retired or disabled ordained or licensed 
minister from all employment by any local church, Annual Conference, 
General Agency, or institution of The United Methodist Church, or from 
any other employer who employed the minister to perform services re- 
lated to the ministry and who elected to make contributions to the 
pension or benefit funds of the United Methodist Church for such re- 
tired minister's pension or disabled minister's benefits. 

NOTE: The rental/housing allowance which may be excluded from a minister's 

gross income is limited to the lesser of (1) the amount of the 
rental/housing allowance designated by the minister's employer or other 
appropriate body, (2) the amount actually expended by the minister to 
provide his or her housing or (3) the legally-determined fair rental 
value of the parsonage or other housing provided. As specified in 
Rev.Rul. 71-280, 1971 C.B.92, "the only amount that will qualify for 
exclusion under section 107(2) of the Code as a 'rental allowance' is 
an amount equal to the fair rental value of the home, including 
furnishings and appurtenances such as a garage, plus the cost of 
utilities." 

Beginning in 1984, there is no longer a sick pay or disability income 
exclusion available with respect to disability benefit payments. 
Therefore, the full amount of disability benefit payments will be 
taxable income the recipient beginning in 1984. 

D. Other Matters 

1. The benefits listed in this report relating to MRPF, MPP, and CPP, 
are a summary of the programs in which this Conference participates 
through the General Board of Pensions, and all claims are subject to 
the detailed programs and interpretations of The General Board. 

2. The Conference Board of Pensions will reimburse (upon receipt of 
voucher) the necessary moving expenses incurred by ministers when 
they retire, up to a maximum of $1,500 and the moving expenses of 
surviving annuitant(s) (who must vacate a parsonage) of a minister 
who dies while in an effective associate or probationary 
relationship, and of a full-time Lay Pastor under appointment. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 209 



3. In cooperation with the Board of the Ordained Ministry, the Board of 
Pensions requests that the Conference Director of Financial Affairs 
conduct a seminar with all new Conference appointees. This seminar 
will be for the purpose of explaining the Comprehensive Major Medi- 
cal Benefits, MPP, and CPP, and to assist these persons in complet- 
ing all necessary applications. It is further requested that infor- 
mation regarding Federal Self-Employment Tax be given by the 
Director of Financial Affairs, an appointee from Internal Revenue 
Service, or other tax expert.

LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



223 



COMMISSION ON EQUITABLE SALARIES 



Your Commission on Equitable Salaries is grateful to the supporting 
churches of the Conference. Because of your contributions to the Equitable 
Salary Fund and to the Temporary General Aid Fund, we are able to provide a 
more adequate income for many full-time pastors in our Conference. We are 
also grateful to the Cabinet, C.F.A. and the Director of Financial Affairs 
for their cooperation with us. 

In order to continue our ministry of promoting a better economic 
welfare for full-time pastors we recommend that all other income be 
considered in establishing how much the Commission will grant as a 
supplement to bring the total income up to the equitable salary level that 
is set by the Annual Conference. We also recommend that the level of 
support for the remainder of the 1985 calendar year continue to be based on 
$15,600 annual income as the maximum level of ministerial support. 

For the Calendar year of 1986 we recommend: 



A. That $16,000 be the maximum level of ministerial support for 
who participate in the Equitable Salary Fund. 



those 



B. That full-time pastors, as defined by the Book of Discipline, 
participating in the Equitable Salary Program be pastors willing to 
itinerate and with a workload index of at least "80". This index 
is determined by adding: (1) Church or Charge membership, (2) 
average attendance at principal worship service, and (3) average 
Sunday School attendance. (This is for the previous year) Divide 
the total by 3. (Example: Church Membership - 126 + 71 + 64 = 261 
divided by 3 = 87). 

C. That the pastor's Base Salary be at least $9,000 per year in order 
to receive funds from the Equitable Salary Fund. We recommend that 
where necessary, travel and utilities allowance be included in this 
base salary figure to qualify the pastor for Comprehensive 
Protection Plan (disability protection.) 



D. That the amount to be provided by the Commission for a pastoral 
charge will be an amount not to exceed 50% of the amount that the 
charge pays for the pastor's salary, travel expense and utility 
allowance. 

E. That annual grants approved by the Commission shall be paid in 
monthly installments on the basis of available funds at the 
beginning of the calendar year. In the event of insufficient funds, 
appropriations shall be made on a pro-rata basis. 



F. That each church or charge, whose pastor receives support from the 
Equitable Salary Fund, is expected to have a financial campaign such

D. REPORTS OF ORGANIZATIONS AND AGENCIES 
COMMITTEE ON EPISCOPACY 



The first half of the 1984-85 conference year was a time of transition 
for Louisiana United Methodists. It was an occasion for saying goodbye to 
Bishop and Mrs. Paul V. Galloway, who in their brief tenure of nine months 
in Louisiana gained the respect and love of our conference. It was also a 
time of welcoming Bishop and Mrs. Walter L. Underwood as our new episcopal 
family. 

The occasion of our ceremonial '' goodbye' ' (one could hardly use the 
word formal) for the Galloways was a dinner on August 8, 1984, during 
Pastor's School. We are indebted to Dr. and Mrs. Odell Simmons, Dr. and 
Mrs. W. 0. Lynch, and the Noel Memorial Church, our hosts for the occasion. 
Bishop and Mrs. Galloway and the entire gathering of over three hundred 
people enjoyed the dinner and brief program. 

The South Central Jurisdictional Conference of 1984 had the wisdom and 
good judgment to elect to the Episcopacy Dr. Walter L. Underwood, senior 
minister of St. Luke's United Methodist Church, Houston, and the Louisiana 
Annual Conference had the good fortune to have Bishop Underwood assigned as 
episcopal leader. The new episcopal family arrived in Baton Rouge on August 
16, and things haven't been the same since then. 

A committee was appointed to plan for the investiture of Bishop 
Underwood as Bishop of the Louisiana Area. Several thousand people gathered 
at the Baton Rouge Centroplex Theater on Sunday, October 28, 1984, at 6:30 
p.m. for a beautiful and impressive ceremony in which Bishop Underwood was 



228 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



invested with the symbols and responsibilities of the office of Bishop of 
Louisiana. Judicatory leaders from numerous denominations in Louisiana 
participated along with United Methodist Bishops and representatives of the 
laity of the conference in the act of Investiture. Following this service, 
there was a reception for the entire Louisiana Conference to welcome the 
Underwoods to Louisiana. Rev. Kirby Vining was chairperson of the 
reception, and Mrs. Rosalind McKenzie chaired the arrangements committee. 

During Bishop Underwood's leadership, he has established several 
priorities: the organization of new church school classes and an active 
church school in every United Methodist Church in Louisiana; new churches in 
growing areas; evangelistic outreach by pastors and congregations; increased 
opportunities for continuing education for pastors in every district of the 
conference. Most dramatically, Bishop Underwood has taken the episcopacy to 
the laity by his tireless visiting of churches and parishes. Every lay 
person in Louisiana is learning from his leadership. 

We are grateful to Bishop Walter L. Underwood for his strong leadership 
in the episcopal office, and for his personal concern for every pastor and 
pastor's family in our conference. 

Mrs. Underwood has done us the courtesy of joining her husband in most 
of his episcopal visits, and we are thankful for her friendship and her 
concern. 

Clyde C. Frazier, Chairperson 






EPISCOPAL RESIDENCE COMMITTEE PROGRESS REPORT 

During this conference year, major steps were taken to provide a 
permanent episcopal residence: 

1. The Episcopal Residence Committee as authorized by action of the 
1984 General and Annual Conferences was established. 

2. As given authority by the 1984 Annual Conference, the Committee 
made two decisions. The first was to provide adequate housing and 
what was believed in the best financial interest of the Conference 
to purchase a temporary residence and the second was to take the 
proper steps in building a permanent residence. 

Progress in the steps to build a residence have included the 
purchase of one of the most desirable lots for such a residence in 
Baton Rouge located in the Bocage Subdivision. The beautiful lot 
was made possible by generous donations from individuals. 

Mr. William J. Hughes, Jr., the architect of the Area Office 
Building, was secured by the Committee and preliminary drawings 
were approved by the Committee in March. After final drawings and 
bids, construction will be underway with plans for completion in 
late 1985. 



J 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 229 



3. The Board of Trustees, as instructed and authorized by the Annual 
Conference of 1984, has executed all legal papers as recommended 
by the Committee. 

4. The financial arrangements have been approved by the Council on 
Finance and Administration within the funding pattern established 
by the action of the 1984 General and Annual Conferences. The 
financial arrangements do not call for any apportionments to the 
local churches of the Conference. 

J. Luther Jordan, Jr., Chairperson 



LOUISIANA MORAL & CIVIC FOUNDATION 



Introduction 

Greetings to all the churches and members of the Louisiana Conference 
from the Board of Trustees and staff of the Louisiana Moral and Civic 
Foundation. Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, and financial 
support. We are thankful for the commitment of Louisiana Methodist to 
promote and protect the moral climate of our state. 

Administration 

In the fiscal year 1984, we received total gifts of $201,701.75. 
Approximately $10,313.81 was given by Louisiana Methodist. This amount is 
down from 1983's Methodist total of $12,342.57. Our asking of $1.00 per 
member per year in 1984 remains the same for 1985. We respectively request 
of those churches who have confidence in LMCF and the job that it's doing to 
please include us in your budget giving at $1.00 per member per year or to 
at least receive a special offering sometimes during 1985. We renew our 
commitment to be good stewards of that which is given as well as our 
appreciation for each and every gift received. 






Ministry 

LMCF continues to minister through its four major programs which are 
Awards, Educational, Legal and Legislative. 

In the Awards Program , Bishop Paul V. Galloway, received the 1984 
J. Henry Bowdon Preaching Award, and Dr. Donald Webb, received the 
Edward Donald Grant Educator of the Year Award. 

In the Education Program , . . .the 1984 LMCF-YLI Youth Leadership 
Institute is now history, but it lives on in the lives and minds of the 
young people who attended. Several of the participants expressed in their 
own words how much the YLI experience meant to them. Typical of those 
expressions is the one by a young man from Pineville. ' 'I got a natural 
high from YLI and it has stayed with me for many weeks. The communication 
was really worthwhile. The love and caring was running high. Everyone I 



230 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



know has noticed a change in my life since YLI. Positively the best 
experience I ever had. Beautiful program. . .no regrets whatsoever, save 
having to come back home.'' LMCF also continued to conduct seminars for 
churches, schools, clubs and many other statewide organizations. Research 
and other informational data is provided upon request to the same groups. 

The Legal Program of LMCF responded to countless questions sought by 
those concerned citizens who actively involve themselves in the struggle to 
improve the moral climate of their community and state. LMCF maintains a 
very up-to-date law library, highly responsible legal counsel, and a 
monitoring service of all major agencies of state government, Attorney 
General's opinions and court decisions. 

The Legislative Program provides for Louisiana Methodist and the 
religious community in general a reliable resource of information and 
monitoring of the Louisiana Legislature. The legislative program does not 
attempt to make LMCF a broker of influence causing people to quickly and 
unquestioningly respond to a particular point of view. It does seek to lead 
people to be compassionate, consistent, objective and honest in their 
relationship to government and its elected officials. Instead of asking 
people to surrender their individual judgment, the legislative program seeks 
to lead citizens to exercise their judgment in a mature and informed fashion 
and to take decisive moral action in the context of what they believe to be 
right. 

To the legislators who request assistance, LMCF provides a resource for 
research on moral issues and an honest and objective opinion as to what 
their constitutents may be thinking concerning a particular moral issue. 
The files of LMCF contain many expressions of gratitude and confidence from 
legislators who have called upon LMCF for assistance. 

Conclusion 

Louisiana Methodist in 1984 exercised their influence on LMCF through 
their elected Board members: First Vice-president, Bob Nash, Second Vice- 
president, Amy Ward, Treasurer, Bill Ford, Dr. W. D. Boddie, Dr. D. L. 
McGuire, and Dr. Samuel W. Walker. Additional participation and influence 
from Louisiana Methodist come from the several members of the State Advisory 
Council. The office of LMCF consulted with and cherished greatly the advice 
and counsel of Bishop Paul V. Galloway. 

LMCF encourages Christian people, their churches, and their 
denominations to work together. We are proud to serve as a front-line 
agency, a channel of communication, a forum for discussion, an instrument of 
cooperative Christian action, and an agency through which all Christian 
denominations can work together to do something effective about serious 
moral issues which would be difficult to solve alone. 

My prayer is that we shall have the prayers and support of the people 
in Louisiana called United Methodist. We stand ready to serve as directed 
and consider it a privilege to serve when asked.

LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 231 



UNITED METHODIST MEN 



Bishop Underwood has set three areas of emphasis for our conference to 
prioritize: spiritual formation, stewardship of life and evangelism. 

In response to this challenge, the Executive Board of the United 
Methodist Men (U.M.M.) has undertaken the coordination of five programs for 
the local churches that will help accomplish these goals. These programs 
emphasize different areas of church life and need. Some of these events 
have been used effectively in our churches for many years and some are 
relatively new. The five recommended programs and origin of materials are: 

1. M. U. M. M. Retreat (Mobilizing United Methodist Men) — U. M. M. 
Louisiana Conference 

2. Lay Witness Mission - Section on Evangelism, Board of Discipleship, 
Nashville, Tennessee 

3. ' 'Key to Joy ,' 'Weekend - Board of Discipleship, Stewardship Area, 
Louisiana Conference 

4. Abundant Life Mission - Institute of Church Renewal - Atlanta, 
Georgia 



• o- 



5. Discipleship Celebration - Section on Visitation and Witness, Board 
of Discipleship, Nashville, Tennessee 

The Louisiana Conference United Methodist Men will promote, schedule 
and guide the planning of these events for our churches. Help will be 
given, upon request, in the selection of the proper program and recommended 
leadership relative to the needs of the local church. The careful selection 
and training of qualified leaders and coordinators, as well as other team 
members, for all five programs will be supervised and under the direction of 
the U. M. M. Program Coordinator Committee, composed of people with many 
years experience in the field.

OUTDOOR MINISTRIES TASK FORCE REPORT 
Conference Retreat Center 
Dream 

The Outdoor Ministries Task Force grew out of action by the 1984 
session of the Louisiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. 
Originally the Task Force was charged with looking at a total program of 
camping, retreats, and conferences at a central site. As the project 
evolved, under the encouragement and leadership of Bishop Walter L. 
Underwood, the Task Force turned its focus to the Retreat Center concept. 
Camping will continue to be promoted, supported and carried out at our three 
District Camps: Caney Conference Centre, Istrouma, and the Lake Charles 
District Camp. 

The need for such investigation by the Task Force has become very 
evident. Our Conference simply does not have adequate facilities for such 
activities as Conference-wide youth retreats, UMW and UMM meetings. More 
than 200 youth regularly show up at camps designed for 170. Two of our 
camps are designed for less than 100 in attendance. None of our facilities 
have large meeting room and dining accomodations. The UMW usually goes to 
Biloxi to house their meetings, while the UMM utilize either Louisiana 
College or Centenary. The need for a retreat setting for the Cabinet, 
Pastor's School and other Continuing Education meetings has been growing 
more and more evident. A place apart with adequate facilities appears to be 
the best solution to our need. Many other conferences over the nation have 
already developed or plan to develop such an idea. Camp Wesley Pines in 
Gallman, Mississippi is a good example of what we feel our Conference should 
adopt. 

Conference Retreat Center Concept 

Growing out of many visitations, discussions, and observations, the 
following criteria began to appear to us as the minimal requirements for a 
retreat center: 

a. Size of no less than 200 acres to allow for future development. 

b. Facilities to accomodate 300 participants in the initial phase 
including motel type lodging, adequate dining facilities and 
meeting space for larger attendance type gatherings. 

c. Location on water in a pastoral setting to allow for aesthetic 
quality and recreational activities. 

d. Within reasonable driving distance for all Louisiana Methodists 
and as close to the United Methodist population center as 
possible. 

e. Financial feasibility. 

f. Accessibility, including such things as paved roads and medical 
availability. 

Task Force Process of Selection 

The Outdoor Ministries Task Force first met in October of 1984 in Baton 
Rouge to set our course. Soon after the Chairperson met with the Conference 
Council on Ministries who soundly supported the concept and urged rapid 
development of the idea. A number of options were examined over the 
intervening eight months via on-site visits to Lakeview Methodist Assembly 



234 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



in Palestine, Texas; Kincaid Lake Area near Alexandria; Pineville, Toledo 
Bend; Leesville, Camp Istrouraa and the Caney Creek Area near Jonesboro. All 
leads and suggestions were carefully and faithfully pursued. Every site 
suggested was checked out by members of the Task Force. The primary 
factors, in addition to the criteria for selection, which guided the Task 
Force were acceptability, desirability, and probability. 

Proposal To Annual Conference 

A. We feel that we are near a recommendation but will need from 60-90 
days to complete our work and make a specific proposal to the 
Annual Conference. We, therefore, request that the Bishop call a 
special session of the Annual Conference in late summer or early 
fall to consider final approval and authorization when specific 
figures and recommendations are available and ready. 

B. We further propose that the Task Force be continued as a 
Development and Design Team for this project. 

Kenneth R. Reed, Chairperson 



COMMITTEE ON COURTESIES 

Bishop Underwood and members of the Conference, on your behalf the 
Committee on Courtesies offers gratitude to the many individuals and groups 
who made this Fifteenth Session of the Louisiana Annual Conference not 
simply possible, but pleasurable and successful. First on our list is one 
of those who certainly began many months ago to plan and prepare for this 
great event. Dr. Harvey G. Williamson is to be commended for the detailed 
coordination of the Annual Conference. As always, Centenary College and 
First United Methodist Church of Shreveport have been gracious in extending 
warm hospitality to each of us. Our hearty thanks go to Dr. Fellers and the 
people of First Church, to Dr. Odell Simmons, and the Shreveport District, 
and to Dr. Webb, Kay Madden, Mark Simmons, and the Centenary College staff 
and courtesy staff. Our love and best wishes also go with Kay Madden. 

Music is such a joyous gift from God, and we give thanks to all who 
shared their musical gift with us this week: The Centenary College Choir 
and Alumni Choir, and their directors Dr. Will Andress and Dr. A. C. Voran & 
Dr. Herman D. Taylor of Dillard for the memorable Bach organ recital. We 
also appreciate our song leader for the Conference, Rev. Kent Kilbourne, 
accompanist Mrs. Marie Durham and organist Mr. Robert Ehrhardt. 

We are also grateful to Mr. Clyde Gorum for the many lovely shrubs and 
flowers that enhanced our worship and business, and to Mr. Claiborne Sharp 
who voluntarily took off from work to handle the sound system. 

We all were blessed and challenged in a great way by the many fine 
preachers. Bishop W. Kenneth Goodson was certainly a highlight of our 
worship which we shall never forget. Rev. Don Avery, Dr. Robert Hayes, Rev. 
Deborah Drash, Rev. Judy Nelson, and Rev. Marie Williams likewise brought us 
strong messages of Good News. We appreciate each of these and the many 
others who assisted in the worship experiences, including Dr. Theo S. 
Standley for his fine gift of liturgy. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 235 



Finally, we express our love and gratitude to Bishop and Mrs. Walter L. 
Underwood for the grace and love they have extended to the people of the 
Louisiana Annual Conference. Bishop Underwood has conducted his first 
session of the Louisian Annual Conference in a fine and gracious manner. We 
appreciate not only his concern with rule and order, but his warm sense of 
humor which has made the sometimes tiresome business sessions more bearable. 
We thank God for the leadership of Bishop Underwood ani look forward to 
another challenging and exciting year, working together with him in service 
to Christ.

BOARD OF TRUSTEES* 
Report Number Three 

Episcopal Residence Committee 



WHEREAS, the Louisiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist 
Church, South Central Jurisdiction, at its meeting in June of 1984, adopted 
the following resolution: 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 241 



,f The annual conference or conferences constituting the episcopal area 
shall be responsible for providing an episcopal residence in which the 



bishop shall reside. 



1 1 



WHEREAS, Episcopal Residence Committee has submitted the following 
report to the Conference Board of Trustees: 

' 'During this Conference year, major steps were taken to provide a 
permanent episcopal residence: 

1. The Episcopal Residence Committee as authorized by action of the 
1984 General and Annual Conferences was established. 

2. As given authority by the 1984 Annual Conference, the Committee 
made two decisions. The first was to provide adequate housing and what was 
believed in the best financial interest of the Conference to purchase a 
temporary residence and the second was to take the proper steps in building 
a permanent residence. 

Progress in the steps to build a residence have included the purchase 
of one of the most desirable lots for such a residence in Baton Rouge, 
located in the Bocage Subdivision. The beautiful lot was made possible by 
generous donations from individuals. 

3. The Board of Trustees, as instructed and authorized by the Annual 
Conference of 1984, has executed all legal papers as recommended by the 
Committee. 

4. The financial arrangements have been approved by the Council on 
Finance and Administration within the funding pattern established by the 
action of the 1984 General and Annual Conferences. The financial 
arrangements do not call for any apportionments to the local churches of the 
Conference. ' ' 

WHEREAS, the Episcopal Residence Committee has reported from time to 
time on their progress to the Conference Board of Trustees, having reported 
specifically on November 17, 1984 that the temporary residence in the 
Runnymede Subdivision will be disposed of, and that a lot in the Bocage 
Subdivision had been purchased, and 

WHEREAS, The Conference Board of Trustees finds that all of the work of 
the Episcopal Residence Committee is in order and is properly done; 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Conference Board of Trustees does by 
these presents endorse and ratify all actions of the Episcopal Residence 
Committee taken in this matter and urge adoption of their report.

X. Memoirs 



WOODROW WILSON BEVILL 



Everyone called Dad ''Shorty'' but this sobriquet reached only his 
physical stature and left to deeper acquaintance the real reach of his 
height. This wonderfully tall, short man was born to Joseph James Bevill 
and Scenie Caldonia McClellan in 1913. Woodrow was a country boy, born with 
his brothers and sisters to a country farmer. Three years after his birth 
at Stamps, Arkansas, Dad and his siblings were moved to the country by 
Grandad. 

He attended grammar school at Cale, Arkansas, and some high school at 
Theo, Arkansas. Dad's school years prepared him for his future work: he 
was a member of the high school debate team and won many honors speaking. 
He often played in comic skits and school drama. Howard Cottingham of 
Prescott, Arkansas, recalls that ''he was a good old boy and really could 
talk.'' As a young man he sang and preached as a Nazarene preacher, and was 
known widely as a good musician. He mastered several instruments, including 
the violin, guitar, mandolin, piano, and harmonica. He sang with quartets 
and various groups from his early years. 

Woodrow Wilson Bevill married his high school sweetheart, Maurice 
Rhodes, when he was eighteen years old. Born to this union were Nadene, 
Elliott, Terry, and I. We lived in Escatawpa, Mississippi, at this time. 
''Shorty's '' second marriage was to Rita Pearl Brooks of Wiggins, 
Mississippi, in June of 1945. Wilma Annette was the only child born to this 
marriage. Pearl began putting the family back together again. 

Dad was converted under the preaching of Barney Walker in 1947 in 
Escatawpa. He received his Elder's Orders in 1957 and was ordained by 
Bishop Franklin of the Mississippi Conference. His pastorates included 
Carriere, Gallman, Crosby, and Leakesville in Mississippi; Harmony Chapel, 
Pinegrove, Houma Heights, Vinton, Logansport, and Mangham in Louisiana. His 
happiest days and most productive years were at Mangham where he passed 
away. His soul was bright as sunshine, his laughter and good humor as 
lilting and free as a meadow lark. Somehow he left his sparkle and spunk 
among visionless people and shared his spangle of light which brightened 
mens ' lives • 

Dad's pastorates lasted thirty-six years, and ever by his side was my 
faithful Mother who, undaunted amid times sad and grand, was the magic 
behind the man. Hers was the last face he saw, the last hand he touched, 
the last voice he heard. My Dad passed away on August 31, 1984. We are 
ever grateful to Rev. Wayne Flowers, minister at Mangham, and Rev. Douglas 
McGuire, District Superintendent of Monroe District, for their warm words at 
Dad's memorial service. Over four hundred came to his service, attesting to 
his everlasting gentleness and love. 

Reverend L. R. Bevill 



244 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



ARBY WADE COODY 



Arby liked to say, * 'All the boys who graduated from high school class 
in Pioneer went into the Methodist Ministry.' ' (The other boy was John 
Oldham, who is pastor in Bernice.) Arby was first listed in the Journal of 
1939. That was the Uniting year of the Methodist Protestant Church with 
the Methodist Episcopal and the Methodist Episcopal South. Arby was listed 
as the ''Junior Preacher'' at Logansport, in the Shreveport District. He 
came through the Methodist Protestant tradition. 

Through those years he and Claribel Kilpatrick Coody served sixteen 

appointments, the last being in Marion where he served following a year in 

retirement at Westlake. From there he and Claribel moved to Bastrop into a 

Home provided for them by the First United Methodist Church in Bastrop. 

From the time they became residents until the evening he died, he was 
still very much in ministry. He worked as chaplain in the Parish Jail; as 
coordinator with the Morehouse Crisis Center; and as Pastor of Visitation on 
the Bastrop, First-Collinston Charge. He led a course on Evangelism; helped 
start a Men's group; preached; and did almost anything else he wanted to do. 
The week of his death he held one funeral and made several visits. On the 
night of his death he attended a District preachers meeting in Monroe. He 
literally died with his "stole'' on. 

As a community pastor, he engaged himself in various civic clubs, was 
once president of a PTA and was a Master Mason. Arby was the quiet presence 
of compassion; the comforting aid of help: a strong shoulder, big hearing 
ears, and large concerned heart. Two persons went into the ministry from 
his pastorate: Mark Walding, now in the Mississippi Conference and Ray Holt, 
now serving St. Mark's/Little Creek Charge. On Saturday, September 29, 
1984, Dr. Douglas L. McGuire and I conducted his funeral service at First 
Church in Bastrop, celebrated by a host of loving friends and family. Ray 
Holt was in Epps to do the benediction at the graveside. 

He is survived by his wife, Claribel, who still resides in the home in 
Bastrop; four daughters: Elaine, Carolyn, Wanda, and Mary; one son, Wade; 
two brothers, three sisters, thirteen grandchildren, and three great- 
grandchildren . 

Once he and Claribel gave a painting to the church at Boeuf Prairie. 
On returning there for a homecoming last year, each of the former pastors 
was being recognized for his years there. After it was all over Arby asked 
one of the laymen, ''Who gave the picture?'' The man turned to Arby and 
said ''I don't remember the preacher, but I do remember the sermon he 
preached that day.'' 

There could be no better epitaph for a Minister of the Gospel! 

William D. Peeples 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 245 



GEORGE HENRY CORRY 



George Henry Corry, known to his family and many friends as ''Henry'' 
was a genuine, old-time circuit riding preacher. He rode the highways and 
byways of his day baptizing babies, performing marriages, presiding at 
funerals, and above all preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ with every 
ounce of strength at his command, and with a strength of conviction which 
transcends any mortal attempt to describe. 

When he was a teen-ager his family knew that Henry had something impor- 
tant on his mind, for a gret deal of the time he was very quiet and seemed 
to be in deep study. They discovered that he felt the call to the ministry 
and wanted to go to Centenary College to prepare himself for his calling, 
but it seemed like an impossible dream. Because of the financial conditions 
of the time, he was hesitant to tell his family about his dream lest it 
worry them. After graduation from high school, he rode his horse into 
Shreveport and sold it so that he could pay the enrollment fees to enter 
college. He was able to get small jobs to pay his way. During the last 
years there, he served a little church between Shreveport and Mansfield. 

Henry was born on October 8, 1898, in Claiborne Parish in Arizona. He 
was the fourth of five children born to James and Puella Corry. Only one 
sister survives, Velma Corry Olive of Dangerfield, Texas. He is also sur- 
vived by his wife of 59 years (former Gertrude Moore); and by two sons, 
Glynn of Ruston, and Coleman of Union Grove, Alabama, as well as several 
grandchildren . 

He attended Arizona Academy and graduated from Centenary College in 
1924. He later attended Southern Methodist University in 1930-31. He began 
his career in Joyce, Louisiana. It is here that he met his wife, who was 
postmistress and cashier of the Tremont Lumber Company commissary store. In 
addition to his ministerial duties, he served as a teacher in the high 
school and as a Boy Scout Master. Most of the homes in Joyce, which were 
owned by the Tremont Lumber Company, were made out of boxcars. The Corry 's 
moved into one of these boxcar homes , where Henry had a garden that was the 
showpiece of the community. He has had beautiful gardens most of his life. 

Among the churches served by the Corry 's were Denham Springs, Pearl 
River, Indian Bayou, Hornbeck, Baker, Eunice, Pelican, Verda, Rochelle, Oak 
Ridge, Choudrant, Clay, Ville Platte, Gonzales, Port Allen, and Zachary. 
After his retirement the Corry 's lived in Homer, Shreveport, Decatur, 
Alabama, and Ruston. His funeral service was held in the Kilpatrick Funeral 
Home in Ruston on Janaury 30,1985, with Rev. Chris Andrews and Rev. Roily 
Walker officiating and Rev. James McLelland playing the organ.

246 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



PEARL WHICHARD EVANS 



Pearl Whichard Evans was born April 17, 1948, the daughter of Sam and 
Ella Mae Ingalls Whichard. While she was growing up in their North Carolina 
parsonage, she heard the call of Jesus Christ to preach. 

During her college and seminary studies at Immanuel College, Pembroke 
State University, and Duke Divinity School, she was in demand as a preacher 
and counselor. She was listed in ''Who's Who in American Colleges and 
Universities.'' After earning her Master of Divinity Degree, she pursued 
clinical pastoral education at Duke Hospital and Georgia Mental Health 
Institute to refine her skills as a pastoral counselor. During this time 
she married A. Wayne Evans, joined the Louisiana Conference, and gave birth 
to a son — Nathan Kirk (''gift of the church"). 

During her ministry in Louisiana, Pearl served as a hospital chaplain 
and earned a Master of Social Work Degree, while undergoing chemotherapy for 
cancer. Her courage and perserverance were evident in the daily trip to 
Baton Rouge for two years. Upon completing this education, she was 
appointed to the Davidson Meraorial-Lydia Charge in Lafayette as co-pastor 
with her husband. The counseling center she opened there united her 
disciplines of prayer and psychotherapy. 

We treasure our memory of Pearl's faith and covet for ourselves her 
life of prayer. The more she listened to God, the greater was her ability 
to identify with the deepest needs of those who sought her counsel. Pearl 
attributed her insight and discernment to the work of the Holy Spirit, who 
is available to every Christian. Because of this belief, she saw the 
possibility of growth and hope for all whom she knew. She had the capacity 
to make the most of what she had to work with, whether in herself or others. 
Many persons with whom she worked have said, ''She touched my life.'' 

Pearl was courageous. The most difficult circumstances did not prevent 
her pursuit of the highest goals, whether ministering to juvenile 
delinquints, paraplegics, alcoholics, or others in crisis. The decision to 
have a second child, Joshua Blake (''God delivers'') indicated her faith in 
God's power to care for her and her family. Her ordination as an elder four 
weeks prior to her death culminated her goal to be a faithful minister of 
Jesus Christ. She credited God and her friends' prayers with the strength 
to participate in the service. We all rejoiced in her faith, even while we 
regret she received perfection in God's kingdom so soon on July 2, 1984. 

Pearl's unfulfilled desire was to continue to provide nurture and 
support for those she loved. Yet her sensitivity, openness, faith, and love 
challenge us all to follow Christ more nearly. As Wesley said of 
Whitfield, so we now say of this servant of Christ, ''Let me die the death 
of the righteous, and let my end be like his.'' (Numbers 23:10) 



James 0. Evans and A. Wayne Evans 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 247 



JUAN SANFIEL GONZALEZ 



Juan Sanfiel was born on June 15, 1917, in the town of Oriento, Cuba. 
He died on June 26, 1984, in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

In between those dates this man of God's word served his Lord, his 
country, his church and his brothers and sisters in a way that is an 
inspiration and a challenge to us all. His career spanned many facets: 
ordained Methodist preacher, district superintendent, evangelist, school 
principal, and forced laborer in Cuba's communist cane fields. 

Juan's life contained more rejection, more sacrifice, more hardship and 
struggle than most of us would encounter in a dozen lifetimes. Cut off from 
his wife and son for ten years, abused and harrassed by authorities, he 
finally escaped to Spain, thence to America and reunion with his loved ones. 

Then, without a sign of bitterness, he and Marta settled into the 
Spanish ministry in New Orleans where their lives were characterized by a 
love and compassion that can only come about when Christ truly is at the 
center of one's whole being. 

Most of us today would soon wilt under the pressures that Juan 
continued to witness under. Few of us would ever consider the ministry if 
we knew ours would be the path that Juan traveled. Yet he did travel it, 
with his head high, and his heart filled with nothing but the desire to 
speak the Good News . 

Juan is gone, but the legacy of pastoral ministry he leaves will stir 
us and inspire us to keep on, to never pause, even as his lovely wife Marta 
has now picked up the staff and moved toward tomorrow with that same, 
unflagging confidence.

MRS. ENOLA WATSON HINDS 



Mrs. Enola Hinds was born November 9, 1891, in Saline, Louisiana. 
After a first marriage that ended in divorce, she met the Reverend Bennett 
D. Watson, a widower, and they were united in marriage October 19, 1950, in 
the Park Avenue Methodist Church, Shreveport, Louisiana. Reverend and Mrs. 
Watson were one of the first retired couples to move into the Methodist 
Retirement Duplex in Ruston, Louisiana, April 25, 1958. 

Reverend Mr. Watson preceded Mrs. Enola in death on April 17, 1962. At 
the time of Brother Watson's death they were living in one of the Methodist 
Retirement Homes at 3726 Judson Street, Shreveport, Louisiana. 

Mrs. Enola Watson Hinds died December 4, 1984, in the Natchitoches 
Parish Nursing Home, in Natchitoches, Louisiana. She loved the Church and 
was devoted to it to the very end of her days. Her greatest joy was to talk 
about the Church, and the goodness and mercy of God. She kept her Bible by 
her bedside and always asked me to read some scripture and pray each time I 



248 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



visited. She and her son, J. T. Adams, Sr., studied the weekly Sunday 
School lesson together regularly up until the last few weeks of her life. 
She is remembered by those who knew her best for her faithfulness. 

Mrs. Enola is survived by one son: John Thomas Adams, Sr., 
Natchitoches, Louisiana, two daughters: Mrs. Mary Ellen Jaggars, Wetumka, 
Oklahoma, and Mrs. Enola Nicolaou, Charlotte, Michigan, eleven grandchildren 
and nineteen great grandchildren.

HENRY LeROY JOHNS 



Henry LeRoy Johns was born November 12, 1896, in Opelousas, Louisiana 
to Hope Foster Johns and the Reverend Henry S. Johns. During his boyhood 
the family lived in several Louisiana towns where his father served appoint- 
ments to Methodist churches. When Roy was 10, his mother died and his 
father accepted the position of chaplain of the Louisiana State Penitentiary 
in Baton Rouge, which he held for the next 20 years. When Roy's father 
married Stella Bonner of Lufkin, Texas, stepson and stepmother quickly 
developed a strong and affectionate relationship which was to continue for 
the rest of their lives. As Roy liked to say, he was lucky in having had 
two beloved mothers: "one for my childhood and one for my youth. '' 

Roy Johns graduated in 1913 from Baton Rouge High School and in 1917 

from Louisiana State University, where he served as editor of the college 

newspaper The Reveille . As a student he took an active role in the 
Methodist Church and the Epworth League. 

After serving in the United States Navy as an ensign in World War I, he 
attended graduate school at Emory University, receiving in 1921 the Master 
of Arts in theology. On June 14, 1921, he married Persis Means of Ida, 
Louisiana, herself a recent graduate of LSU. 

He was accepted into the Louisiana Conference of the Methodist Church 
on trial that same year and in full connection in 1923. Churches served 
included Cedar Grove, Shreveport, First Church, Natchitoches; Carrollton and 
Rayne Memorial, New Orleans; First Church, Lake Charles; and First Church, 
Monroe. He served as District Superintendent of the Monroe District in the 
1930 's and as District Superintendent of the New Orleans District. During 
the post-World War II years he was instrumental in founding eight new 
Methodist churches in the New Orleans area. In 1955 he was elected a staff 
member of the National Board of Missions of the Methodist Church, with the 
initial responsibility of establishing the Alaska Methodist College in 
AncViorage, Alaska. Subsequently he became director of church extension for 
the Southeastern Jurisdiction of the Methodist Church, a position he held 
until his retirement in 1965. Returning to Monroe to live he became Pastor 
Emeritus of First United Methodist Church, Monroe. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 249 



Dr. Johns was a delegate to the last general conference of the former 
Methodist Episcopal Church South in 1936 and to the Uniting Conference of 
Methodism in 1939. In 1943 he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Divinity 
degree from Centenary College. He served on the board of the Methodist 
Children's Home, Ruston; was president of the board of the Methodist Home 
Hospital, New Orleans; and was a lifetime member of te board of trustees of 
Centenary College. He was president of the New Orleans Council of Churches 
1950-52. 

This record speaks to H. L. John's industry and vision. But the bare 
sketch of years must be filled out and brought alive by the memories that 
friends and family have of him: his shrewd eye and quick humor; his dignity 
combined with an utter lack of pretension; his boundless belief in others' 
capacity to keep pace with his energies; his love of classical music, roses 
and daylilies, fishing and history; and even the flare of his temper. He 
was a husband in an exemplary, mutually stengthening, mutually inspiring 
marriage. He was a father whom the three children, Persis, Roy and Hope, 
could both lean on and laugh with; someone to bring questions to, who might 
leave you with even more thoughtful questions; a goer and a doer, as well as 
a steady presence to come home to. To one of his ten grandchildren, he was 
a tall, suited figure whom even grownups seemed to look up to but who 
nonetheless found time to send thoughtful letters to a five-year-old — 
always typed, and signed in a flouish with his family nickname, ''Peppy.'' 

H. L. Johns died at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in 
Alexandria on February 22, 1985, having suffered a gradually debilitating 
illness during the last years of his life. Even at his lowest ebb of 
strength, though, the penetrating soul and mind would occasionally flash 
through. And at those moments, those around him noted, his remarks were 
always directed at the needs and well-being of others. His deepest and most 
enduring instinct was for service.

CLINTON ANTHONY JORDAN 



On November 29, 1984, God called to ''the house not made with hands'' a 
dedicated and humble servant of God, Rev. Clinton Anthony Jordan. The words 
are so true, ''in the midst of much suffering - death dropped down gently 
for an instant, claiming a tired body, releasing a soul, leaving behind 
tears - and an aching loneliness, but a great hope and reason to celebrate 
for it proclaims that death is a victory because of Christ.'' Silently and 
serenely, he slipped into the city not made with hands to experience in a 
personal way the home prepared by Jesus for those who follow Him and walk 
with Him. Yes, ''God's finger touched him and he fell asleep'' to awaken in 
a place better in its enjoyments, its society, its fellowship, its worship, 
and its friendship. To this home without tears, pain, sorrow, sickness, 
death, trials, and hardship our loved one and friend has gone to enjoy vast 
possessions, sublime fellowship and perfect enjoyments. No, we will not 
doubt our Father's wisdom - now will we continue in gloom, for we know he is 
happy and busy serving others in another room. 



250 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Brother Jordan, known to his friends as ' 'Click,' ' was the son of 
Harold and Olive Jordan, born February 22, 1920, in Kilcanny, Minnesota. 

He served in the Armed Forces from 1940 - 1945 and in the European 
Theater for two of these years. In 1942 he was married to Yvonne Hearne , 
daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Robert ''Bob'' Hearne. To this union five 
children were born - Glenda Gayle, Mary Virginia, Donna Denise, Clinton 
Robert, and Charles Jay. 

''Click'' was called to preach when he was 16 years old, but answered 
the call at the age of 49. It occurred in 1969, during a prayer vigil at 
Southside United Methodist Church. He immediately began to work in all 
areas of the church as he studied for his license to preach, which he 
received in 1970. He served appointments in Pioneer, Waterproof, Marion, 
Elizabeth and Hopewell, Glenmora, Fellowship, and Forest Hill, Simsboro, 
Antioch, and Salem, Kentwood and Mt . Herman. Click suffered much before his 
death, but I believe if he could speak to us, he would say: 

''My soul has found the glory land. I'm resting 
on the pillows of infinite peace, infinite love, 
infinite mercy, and I've laid my burdens down and 
from the Savior's nail scarred hands, I've received 
the promised crown.'' 

The death of ''Click'' Jordan leaves a lonely place in our hearts. 
However, it celebrates a victorious God; a loving Savior; a life lived in 
fellowship with God; and a Great Commencement, for he is now living the 
eternal life - a more complete and better life. 

Click will be remembered as a good and caring man who gave himself 
without reservation on behalf of others and served the Lord with deep 
devotion. He fulfilled his obligation to church, family, and community with 
honesty, sincerity, integrity, and with an unshakable faith in Christ Jesus. 
He made a great contibution to the United Methodist Church for twenty-four 
years .

ASHLEY T. LAW 



Ashley T. Law was born October 9, 1894. His parents James Henry and 
Margaret Powell Law raised him on a cotton plantation near Benoit, 
Mississippi. Early in life they recognized that he had unusual artistic 
ability. He attended the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. At 
this institution he was awarded the Corcoran Bronze Medal for his art. In 
1913 he entered the Philadelphia Academy of Art. He graduated in 1915, 
leading the senior portrait class. 

On graduation he set up and maintained an art studio in New York City 
and was becoming well known in the art world. When World War I broke out, 
even though he had no military aspirations, he immediately joined the 2nd 
Regiment of the Mississippi National Guard, which later became a part of the 
army's 39th Division in Europe. During training exercises he contracted 
spinal meningitis and was given up for dead by the doctors but later 
recovered. While on occupation duty in Germany, he received a letter that 
ordered him to report for ''art duty'' at the Army Expeditionary Forces Art 
Center in Paris. He studied under the noted portrait painter, Angel 
Zarraga, who chose one of his paintings as the best in the AEF Center- This 



252 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



painting of a French girl was appropriate for inclusion in a war relics 
exhibition. It currently hangs in the Pentagon. 

He began preparing for the ministry in Chicago. He soon returned to 
Mississippi and following the leading of his inner voice he went to 
California and entered the Bible Institute of Los Angeles. Four years later 
he graduated. He was ordained Elder in 1929 after having attended SMU. 

Ashley returned to Mississippi and served as an associate at 
Starksville. After two years he prayed for a church of his own with a 
furnished parsonage, a salary of $1000 and a wife. Three weeks later he 
received a letter offering him the Methodist Church in Cotton Valley, La. 
The Church payed $1000 a year and had a furnished parsonage. Within weeks 
of moving to Cotton Valley he met Ruby Camp and they were married seven 
months later. They raised five children: Ruth, Mary, Sarah, James and 
Paul. 

Later he served Felicity (N.O.), Ponchatoula, Amite, Pineville, Welsh, 
Parker Memorial (New Orleans), Greenwood and Plain Dealing. He was 
responsible for a new church building In Welsh. He retired in 1960 and 
moved to Alexander, Va. His calling card read, f 'Ashley T. Law, Minister 
Artist.'' He reflects on these years, ''The latter part of my life is being 
devoted more to fine art than to the ministry; though, I still do quite a 
bit of preaching and teaching in Bible classes.'' 

He has painted portraits of several great and near-great persons. 
Among these are Earl T. Hotalen, LMCF Director for many years, Oral Roberts, 
Bishop Aubry Walton of the Louisiana Annual Conference, Bishop John Wesley 
Shungo of the Congo Africa Conference, Mr. and Mrs. Demos Shakarian, 
President of the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship. The most famous 
persons he painted were President and Mrs. Gerald Ford. He had the pleasure 
of presenting it to President Ford in the Oval Room at the White House. He 
commented, ''It's a long way from the cotton fields to the White House.'' 

He moved to Shreveport in 1969, where he lived until his death January 
26, 1985. His beautiful Ruby preceeded him in death in 1979. He summed up 
his own life and ministry very well, ''All I do is for the glory of God. I 
am an ordinary man except for what God has given me. It is for His glory, 
not mine. ' '

MRS. HAROLD W. (ALLENA) LONGFELLOW 



Memorial services for Mrs. Allena Longfellow, Assistant Professor of 
English, LSU-S, were held on Sunday, April 14, at Wynn Memorial United 
Methodist Church in Shreveport. Mrs. Longfellow died on Mondy, April 8, 
1985, at Doctor's Hospital, Shreveport, after a sudden illness. 

Allena Justyn Longfellow, daughter of the late Rev. Allen R. Reeves and 
Mrs. Fredna Akin, was born on April 8, 1929, in Pensacola, Florida. The 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 253 



daughter of a Navy family, Mrs. Longfellow lived in several cities across 
the United States during her early years. 

She was married to Rev. H. W. Longfellow and with hira served the United 
Methodist Church for some thirty-one years, the last fourteen being at Wynn 
Memorial United Methodist Church in Shreveport. ' 'Len' ' was always active 
in church work; teaching, playing the piano and organ, directing the choir 
and whatever else was needed. Together they reared three children, Phillip, 
Rebecca Stoval, and Jonathan. ''Len'' also leaves three grand-children, one 
brother, Rev. Allen R. Reeves, Jr., and two sisters, Margurite R. Carter, 
and Judith A. Hoyt. 

She attended Northwestern Louisiana University and graduated suraraa cum 
laude from Louisiana Tech in 1968 with a B.A. in English. She received the 
M.A. in English from Louisiana Tech in 1969. She also attended New College 
of the University of Edinburg in 1976 and 1978, the University of Colorado 
in 1977, and was a doctoral candidate at Che University of Arkansas, where 
she had completed all requirements for the Ph.D. in English and was in the 
process of writing her dissertation. Mrs. Longfellow joined the faculty of 
LSU-S in 1969 as an instructor of English in 1975. She initiated and 
developed English 221, The Literature of the English Bible, one of the most 
popular courses in the English Department. She had also completed her 
Doctorate with the exception of sending in a final draft of her 
dissertation. 

Dr. Wilfred Guerin, Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, LSU-S, said 
that Mrs. Longfellow was one of the most successful classroom teachers in 
the English Department, noting that ''her humanistic concerns and her 
awareness of value systems became a part of her attention to teaching 
composition and effective communication as much as a part of her teaching of 
literature. ' ' 

As a friend and family member for the past thirty-six years, I, along 
with a host of others, will miss ' 'Len' ' in more ways than can be counted.

MRS. NATHANIEL H. (ETHEL PERKINS) MELBERT 



Ethel Perkins Melbert was born on April 10, 1897, in Houston, Texas. 
After a long and full life, Mrs. Melbert died on May 10, 1985, in the city 
of her birth. 

Her husband's ministry extended over a period of forty-three years. 
She ministered side by side with him and knew her role as a pastor's wife to 
be her calling. Her love for God and others was the foundation upon which 
she built and lived her life. 

She was for many years a teacher of children in the church's education 
ministry. Upon moving to San Antonio she taught a women's Sunday school 
class and found much joy in working with the United Methodist Women. She 
had a tremendous sense of humor. She loved to laugh and loved to help 
others laugh and find happiness^ Two of her hobbies included cooking and 



254 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



geneology research. She was able to trace her ancestry back to the 17th 
century. 

Her death occurred only four and a half months following her husband's. 
Dr. and Mrs. Melbert's significant legacy include their son and daughter, 
six grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren. One of the Roper 
grandchildren is continuing in the tradition of the ministry as a chaplain 
in the United States Army. 

Appreciation for the above information is expressed to Dr. Calvin W. 
Froehner, Senior Pastor of the Travis Park United Methodist Church in San 
Antonio, Texas. 



NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE MELBERT 






Born on September 22, 1891, in Gypsum, Kansas, Nathaniel Melbert was 

the second the youngest of nine children of Casper and Catherine Melbert. 

He was a graduate of the University of Kansas and the Y.M.C.A. Seminary in 
Chicago, Illinois. 

His ministry began in 1917 in Houston, Texas, with fifty hymnals and a 
tent . 

He married Ethel May Perkins in 1918, and two children were born of 
this union, Shirley Melbert Roper and James S. Melbert. 

Brother Melbert was a member of the Texas Conference at the beginning 
of his ministry, was sent to University Church in Berkeley, California, and 
then to various churches in Texas. He was the District Superintendent of 
the Marlin District, Marlin, Texas. 

. 

He came to First United Methodist Church in New Orleans in 1941, and 
was minister of that church until his retirement in 1960. Under his 
leadership the merger of the original First Methodist and the Canal Street 
Methodist Churches of New Orleans was successfully accomplished. First 
Church, New Orleans, was his only Louisiana assignment. 

Following his retirement, he and his wife moved to San Antonio, Texas, 
where he joined the Travis Park Methodist Church as an associate pastor for 
several years. He began a Sunday School class whose membership amounted to 
100, with regular attendance of approximately 75 persons every Sunday. That 
class is still going strong with approximately 45 to 50 persons in 
attendance every Sunday. Brother Melbert taught up until his 91st birthday. 
He died December 26, 1984. 

His Sunday School class at Travis Park UMC has established a 
scholarship fund in his honor and memory, the proceeds of which will be used 
to help young preachers.

LEWIS E. MILEM 



Lewis Edmond "Ed'' Milem was born on July 13, 1921, in Fenwick, West 
Virginia, son of Charles Wesley Milem and Sarah Ann Litteral. His death 
came suddenly at the Minden Medical Center on Sunday, April 21, 1985, at the 
age of 63. 

Ed Milem received his Deacon's Orders in 1958 and Elder's Orders in 
1960 in the West Virginia Conference. After serving pastorates in West 
Virginia for eight years, he moved to Louisiana in 1963, transferring his 
conference affiliation to the Louisiana Annual Conference in 1964 as an 
associate member. He served churches in Louisiana for eleven years prior to 
taking disability leave and then retirement. He had been a resident of 
Minden, Louisiana, since 1981. 

He is survived by his wife, Alma Vealy Milem; two sons: Lewis Milem, 
Jr. of Mansfield and David Wesley Milem of Nacogdoches, Texas; two 
grandchildren: Jason and Keila Milem of Mansfield; and three sisters. 

The funeral services celebrating his entry into the heavenly home, of 
which he has been a citizen for many years, was held at St. Paul United 
Methodist Church in Nitro, West Virginia, on April 26, 1985, with Dr. Marvin 
G. Fram officiating.

MRS. PLEASANT (LENA OWENS) SIBLEY, SR. 



Lena Owens Sibley, a native of Tangipahoa Parish, was born February 
24, 1906, and after an extended illness, passed away December 7, 1984, 
having been married to the Rev. Pleasant W. Sibley, Sr. fifty-nine years and 
nine months. Six children were born of this marriage — four boys: Pleasant 
Jr., Howard, Glenn and Ralph, and two girls: Gloria Yvonne Morel and 
Katherine Behrman. Prior to his call to the ministry Reverend Sibley worked 
as a machinist in a sawmill. Answering the call was not easy as he and Mrs. 
Sibley had two children and he was faced with the job of going back to high 
school. Although her husband was not a preacher when they married, she 
quickly adjusted to life in the parsonage. 

She never sought places of leadership in the local church, choosing 
rather to support her husband and be a good mother to her children. The 
ministry of this family was quite unique in that Rev. Sibley never served a 
charge outside what is known as the Florida Parishes, and most of the 
churches he served had three or four churches on the circuit. The ministry 
of this dedicated couple was begun in the early thirties, the very heart of 
the depression. These circuits only paid from two hundred to four hundred 
dollars per year, so Mrs. Sibley's job was to stretch the few dollars they 
received as far as possible. A garden was a must so the entire family 
pitched in to help make it one of the finest in the community. Needless to 
say, Mrs. Sibley spent much time in canning vegetables and preserving fruit. 



256 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Indicative of the quality and effectiveness of this parsonage family is 
the fact that they served one circuit four different times; another three 
different times, and most of their pastorates were for five or six years. 

Preachers' kids, and I am one of them, do not always make the best 
church members when they grow up, but when they do it is usually due to the 
training they received at home. The fact that these six children are 
substantial members of the church in the communities where they reside is a 
tribute to this dedicated mother. 

Those of us who were close friends over the years know that she was 
more than just a housekeeper and mother. Upon occasion she talked with my 
wife about how much she had relied upon her faith and how much prayer had 
meant to her. She was never one to make a show of her love and loyalty to 
her Lord, but one only had to be around her a little while to know that her 
life had quality and depth that came only from a closeness with her Lord. 

A loyal and devoted wife and faithful mother has now moved up to a full 
time enjoyment of her Lord and His Kingdom.

MRS. CEASER D. (THELMA) SMALL 



It has been said, ,f that the light of heaven is the face of Jesus 
Christ; the joy of heaven is the presence of Jesus Christ; the melody of 
heaven is the name of Jesus Christ; the harmony of heaven is the praise of 
Jesus Christ; the theme of heaven is the work of Jesus Christ; the 
employment of heaven is the service of Jesus Christ. 



i i 



Jesus Christ was the world to Sister Small. She was born in the city 
of New Orleans, educated in the schools of New Orleans. Some forty years 
ago she married the Rev. C. D. Small, a minister of the United Methodist 
Church. From this union came five daughters and one son. Sister Small 
worked side by side with Brother Small all over the Louisiana Conference, 
from Napoleonville to Shreveport, to New Orleans, and for a short while, 
Chicago, Illinois, where Rev. Small took on a short term pastorate. She was 
a tireless worker in the Women's Society of Christian Service, where she 
provided leadership in many of the missionary projects of the conference. 
Sister Small was known and loved by persons from all denominations and all 
walks of life. She always had words of encouragement for those whom she met 
along the way. She is remembered for her support for the Lafon Home, The 
Peoples Methodist Center and Gulfside Assembly. 

Sister Thelma Small was called home on December 15, 1984. Her funeral 
was conducted from one of the churches she helped her husband to build, the 
St. Philip United Methodist Church.

HENRY L. STEWART, JR. 

To most pastors, Rev. Henry Stewart, Jr. was known as ''Teddy,'' a sign 
of the trust and love we held for hiin. Teddy was born May 29, 1909, in 
Kenner, Louisiana, the son of Henry Sr. and Emma Stewart. His early 
education was in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana; later he received degrees from 
Tuskegee Institute in Alabama and Xavier University in New Orleans. In 
1933, he was married to Florence Perkins and from this union came six 
children: Irma, Henry III, Harold, Harriett, Equilla, and Hiram. 

Teddy's professional life was in the field of education for many years. 
He taught in the public schools of Jefferson and Orleans Parishes and was a 
principal and supervisor in the Jefferson Parish School System. 

His pastoral life began in the early 1960 's when he served the follow- 
ing churches: Boynton, Brooks, Kenner-Ross, and St. Philip's United 
Methodist Churches. 

Teddy's areas of service were not limited to school and church. He was 
the first black City Councilman in Kenner, Louisiana, a charter member of 
the NAACP, served on Zoning Boards, Bicentennial Commission, Council on 
Aging, and helped develop 25-30 acres of real estate, believing ''every man 
should be a home owner.'' He also served in these areas: New Orleans 
Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation, New Orleans Association for Mentally 
Retarded, Kenner Housing Authority, Jefferson Parish Doll and Toy Fund, 
Louisiana Retired Teachers Association, Association of Retired People and 
the Board of Directors of Majestic Mortuary Service. 

Teddy was instrumental in organizing the Kenner White Sox Baseball 
Club, Kenner Community Band, and community playgrounds. 

After 75 years of service to God and Man, ''Brother Teddy'' laid down 
his burden and went to be with his Lord. This place was made better by his 
traveling with us.

MRS. CLARENCE B. (VERDA) WHITE 



Verda Arilla Houston White was born November 3, 1902 to James and 
Selona Houston in Reids, Louisiana. There were three brothers and five 
sisters, and regular family gatherings at the ''old home place'' bore 
witness to a happy family with close ties. There are memories of working 
together, being happy together, and attending the Hopewell Methodist Church 
together. 

Reverend Clarence Budd White had served as minister of the Hopewell 
Church, but he did not meet Verda until a return visit to the Houston home. 
She had graduated from Northwestern and taught school for six years. 



258 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



Budd and Verda were married November 17, 1927, less than a year after 
they met. She no longer taught school, but she worked in the churches they 
served - Marksville, Melder, Wilmer and Hodge. Then, in 1937 the White's 
moved to Ruston, where Rev. White served as Superintendent of the Children's 
Home for nearly twenty years. Verda plunged into the new work, too, and 
became head matron and dietician, in addition to being a ''mother'' to over 
two hundred residents at the home. 

The White's retired from the Colfax Church in 1960. They moved to Lake 
Charles a year later, as Verda 's mother and three sisters lived there. 
Verda soon became involved in the work of University United Methodist 
Church, where she remained an active member until her death in her home on 
February 17, 1985. She is survived by her husband, Reverend Clarence B. 
White, one son, Dr. James C. White, one daughter, Mrs. Virginia Rose Dupree, 
five grandchildren and four great grandchildren. 

Verda was in declining health the final year of her life, but the last 
months were lived to the fullest as she showed great concern for family 
members, giving them strength and courage to face her death. They talked 
about her dying and her responsiveness to each precious moment given became 
for those around her lessons on how to die. Family members were with her 
when she finally said, ''this is the end.'' 

It was the end of that final stage of life, and the beginning of yet 
another.

MRS. WILLIE H. (ANNIE PELICHET) WILLIS 



Annie Pelichet Willis, daughter of Mrs. Ella Pelichet and the late 
Henry Pelichet, Sr. was born March 2, 1931, in Maringouin, Louisiana. She 
departed this life Tuesday, October 30, 1984. 

She accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at Shiloh United Methodist 
Church, where she was baptized. She later became a member of Moses Chapel 
United Methodist Church in Zachary, Louisiana. After the death of her 
husband, the late Reverend Willie H. Willis, she transferred her membership 
to Camphor Memorial United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

She was rich in faith and good works, esteemed by her family, friends, 
community and church.

Tennessee; Mr. Billy Willis, Fort Hood, Texas; four daughters: Mrs. Marilyn 
W. Smith, Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Mrs. Marsha Nelson, Baton Rouge,

interrupted except for a breach of order, or a misrepresentation, or to 
direct the attention of the Conference to the fact that the time has 
arrived for a special order, or to raise a very urgent question of high 
privilege. 

RULE 8. SPEAKING MORE THAN ONCE; LENGTH OF SPEECH: No member shall speak a 
second time on the same question if any member who has not spoken 
desires the floor, no more than twice on the same subject under the 
same motion, no longer than ten minutes unless his time shall be 
extended by the Conference. This ten minute limit may be reduced by a 
majority vote of the Conference at any time, and for any period 
duration. 

RULE 9. QUESTION OF HIGH PRIVILEGE: A member claiming the floor at any 
time for what he believes is a very urgent question of high privilege 
shall be allowed to indicate briefly the nature of the question and if 
it be adjudged by the chair to be such, he may proceed at his pleasure 
or until the chairman judges that he has exhausted his privilege. 

RULE 10. VOTING AREA OF CONFERENCE: Only delegates within the area of the 
Conference when the vote is taken shall be entitled to vote. All 
delegates within the area at the time a question is put shall vote, 
except such as shall have been excused for special reasons by the 
Conference. 

RULE 11. VOTING PROCEDURES: Voting shall be by a show of hands unless 
otherwise ordered by the Conference. An ''aye'' or ''nay'' vote, if 
taken, shall be by signed ballot. An ''aye'' and ''nay'' vote by 
secret ballot may be ordered on call of any member, supported by one- 
third (1/3) of the members present and voting. A count vote may be 
ordered on call of any member supported by one-third (1/3) of the 
members present and voting, in which case the delegates shall rise from 
their seats and stand until counted. 

No other business shall be in order when a vote is being taken or 
when the previous question has been called, until the process is 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 






completed, except such as relates to the vote itself, or that which can 
be appropriately fitted into the time while waiting for the report of 
the secretaries on a count vote, or any ''aye'' or ''nay'' vote. The 
count shall be made by the Committee of Tellers. 

RULE 12. DIVISION OF QUESTION: Before a vote is taken any delegate shall 
have the right to call for a division of any question, if it is subject 
to such division as he indicates. If no delegate objects, the division 
shall be made; but if there is objection, the chair shall put the 
question of division to vote, not waiting for a second. 

RULE 13. VOTE BY ORDER: The ministerial and lay delegates shall deliberate 
as one body; put upon a call, by motion of any delegate, seconded by 
another delegate of the same order and supported by one-third (1/3) of 
the members of that order voting, the ministerial and lay delegates 
shall vote separately. But when the Conference votes by orders, no 
measure shall be passed without the concurrence of a majority of both 
classes of delegates. In cases of such a vote the order calling for it 
shall vote first; provided, however, that the Conference may not vote 
by orders on a proposed amendment to the Constitution. Discipline (pp. 
64-66) 

RULE 14. MOTION FOR ADOPTION OR REPORTS AND RESOLUTIONS UNNECESSARY: 
Whenever a report of a committee signed by the chairman and secretary 
thereof, shall be presented to the Conference for its action, it shall 
be deemed in proper order for consideration by the Conference without 
the formality of a motion to adopt, and a second thereto. 

RULE 15. REQUIRED FORMS FOR REPORTS, RESOLUTIONS, MOTIONS, AND AMENDMENTS: 
All resolutions and committee reports shall be presented in triplicate; 
and, when requested by the secretary, motions, including amendments, 
shall be presented in writing. 

RULE 16. ALTERATIONS OF MOTIONS, ETC.: When a motion is made and seconded, 
or a resolution is introduced and seconded, or a committee report is 
read, it shall be deemed to be in possession of the Conference, and may 
not be altered except by action of the Conference. 

RULE 17. UNDEBATABLE MOTIONS: The following motions shall be acted upon 
without debate: 

1. To adjourn, when unqualified, except to adjourn the Conference 
finally. 

2. To suspend the rules. 

3. To lay on the table. 

4. To take from the table. 

5. To call for the previous question. 

6. To reconsider a non-debatable motion. 

7. To limit or extend the limits of debate. 

8. To call for the orders of the day. 

RULE 18. RIGHTS OF THE MAIN QUESTION: The main question may be opened to 
debate under the following motions: to adopt, to amend, to commit or 
refer, to substitute, to postpone, and to reconsider. No new motion, 
resolution, or subject shall be entertained until the one under 
consideration shall have been disposed of. The foregoing does not 
apply to secondary motions if otherwise allowable in the existing 
parliamentary situation. 

RULE 19. PRECEDENCE OF SECONDARY MOTIONS: If any one or more of the 
following motions shall be made when one or more other motions are 
pending, the order of their precedence in relation to one another shall 
be the same as the order of their listing below: 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 275 



1. To fix the time to which the Conference shall adjourn. (This 
motion is subject of amendment, or it may be laid on the table.) 

2. To adjourn. 

3. To take recess. 

4. To order the previous question. 

5. To lay on the table. 

6. To limit or extend the limits of debate. 

7. To postpone to a given time. 

8. To commit or refer. 

9. To amend or to substitute (one amendment being allowed to an 
amendment . ) 

10. To postpone idefinitely. 

RULE 20. TABLING RELATED MOTIONS: No motion which adheres to another 
motion, or has another motion adhering to it, can be laid on the table 
by itself. Such motions, if laid on the table, carry with them the 
motions to which they respectively adhere, or which adhere to them. 

RULE 21. REFERRING REPORTS, ETC: It shall be in order for the Conference 
to refer to a committee a section or a part of a report or resolution 
which is before the Conference for consideration, or any amendment 
offered thereto. 

RULE 22. PROCEDURE FOR CONSIDERATION OF SUBSTITUTES: When a resolution or 
committee report is properly before the Conference for consideration 
and action, even if amendments thereto are pending, a substitute there- 
fore may be offered by any member moving that the same be substituted 
for the report or resolution under consideration. The Conference shall 
then proceed first to perfect the original report or resolution, in- 
cluding consideration and action upon any amendments which may be 
offered to it. The same perfecting process shall then be followed with 
respect to the substitute. The question shall then be put first on the 
motion to substitute, followed by the motion to adopt the report or 
resolution; provided, however, that the motion for the previous 
question shall not be in order on the adoption of the report or recom- 
mendation or on making the proposed substitution until opportunity has 
been given for at least two (2) members to speak on each side of the 
question of substitution or adoption. 

RULE 23. PREVIOUS QUESTION: When any member moves the previous question 
(that is, that the vote be now taken on the motion or motions pending), 
he shall indicate to what he intends it to apply, if any secondary 
motion or motions are also pending. If he does not so indicate, it 
shall be regarded as applying only to the immediately pending 
question. This motion shall be taken without debate, and shall 
require a two-thirds (2/3) vote of those present and voting for its 
adoption; and if it is accepted, the vote shall be taken on the motion 
or motions to which it applies without further debate. 

RULE 24. MOTION AFTER SPEECH: It shall not be in order for a member 
immediately after discussing a pending question, and before 
relinquishing the floor, to make a motion whose adoption would limit or 
stop debate. 

RULE 25. EXCEPTIONS TO MAJORITY VOTE: k majority of those voting, a quorum 
being present, shall decide all questions with the following 
exceptions: 

1. One-third (1/3) of those present and voting shall suffice to 
sustain a call for a count vote in case the decision of the chair 
is doubted. A tie vote sustains the chair. 

2. A call for a vote by orders shall prevail if sustained by one- 



276 LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 



third (1/3) of the members of the order from which the call came, 
present and voting. 
3. A two-third (2/3) vote shall be required to sustain a motion to 
suspend or amend the rules; to sustain a motion for the previous 
question; to set aside a special order; to consider a special 
order before the time set therefor; to sustain the request of the 
Committee on Courtesies and Privileges for the presentation of any 
person on the final day of the Annual Conference. 
RULE 26. RECONSIDERATION: A motion to reconsider an action of the 
Conference shall be in order at any time if offered by a member who 
voted with the prevailing side. If the motion proposed for recon- 
sideration is non-debatable, the motion to reconsider may not be de- 
bated. 
RULE 27. CALENDARS, REGULAR AND NON-CONCURRENCE: The Secretary shall keep 
a chronological record of orders of the day and of reports of 
committees, which record shall be called the Calendar, and the matter 
of business placed on it shall be considered as recommended by the 
Committee on Agenda (the Cabinet) to the Conference, unless by a two- 
thirds (2/3) vote of the Conference an item is taken up out of its 
order. 

When committee presents a report on a given subject, as part of 
its report, it must also list the numbers of all petitions relating to 
this subject on which the committee voted non-concurrence. 
RULE 28. MOTION TO ADJOURN IN ORDER EXCEPT: The motion to adjourn when 
unqualified, shall be taken without debate, and shall always be in 
order, except: 

1. When a delegate has the floor. 

2. When a question is actually put, or a vote is being taken, and 
before it is finally decided. 

3. When the previous question has been ordered and action thereunder 
is pending. 

4. When a motion to adjourn has been lost, and no business or debate 
has intervened. 

5. When the motion to fix the time to which the Conference shall 
adjourn is pending. 

The foregoing does not apply to a motion for final adjournment of the 

Conference . 

RULE 29. SPEAKERS FOR AND AGAINST: When the report of a subject is under 
consideration, it shall be the duty of the presiding officer to 
ascertain, when he recognizes a member of the Conference, on which side 
he proposes to speak; and he shall not assign the floor to any member 
proposing to speak on the same side of the pending question as the 
speaker immediately preceding if any member desire to speak on the 
other side thereof. 

Except for undebatable motions, no motion shall be adopted or 
>u£stion relating to the same decided without opportunity having been 
given for at least two speeches for and two against the said proposal, 
provided that right is claimed before the chairman or duly authorized 
member representing the committee's report or the minority report, if 
there be such, is presented to close the debate. 

When all have spoken who desire to do so, or when (and after) the 
previous question has been ordered, the chairman or/and duly authorized 
member or members presenting a committee's report (and a minority 
report if there be one) shall be entitled to speak before the vote is 
taken. 



LOUISIANA ANNUAL CONFERENCE 277 



This right of the chairman and/or other member or members to close 
the debate shall prevail in like manner to a limit of five minutes when 
a vote is about to be taken on a motion to amend, to substitute, to 
postpone, to refer, or to lay on the table or any other motion whose 
adoption would vitally affect the report under consideration; provided, 
that this five minute limit shall not apply to a motion to substitute a 
minority report for a regular (majority) report of a committee. 

RULE 30. EFFECTIVE DATE: All actions of the Annual Conference everywhere 
shall become effective upon the final adjournment of the session of the 
Annual Conference at which they are enacted, unless otherwise 
specified, except as provided otherwise in the Discipline. 

RULE 31. SUSPENSION OF RULES: The operation of any of the provisions of 
these Rules of Order ;nay be suspended at any time by a two-thirds (2/3) 
vote of the Conference. 

RULE 32. AMENDING RULES: These Rules of Order may be amended or changed by 
a two-thirds (2/3) vote of the Conference; provided the proposed change 
or amendment has originated in the Committee on the Rules, or has been 
presented to the Conference in writing and referred to this committee, 
which committee shall report thereon not later than the following day. 

RULE 33. ROBERT'S RULES OF ORDER, SUPPLEMENTAL AUTHORITY: In any 
parliamentary situation not clearly covered by these Rules of Order, 
the Annual Conference shall be governed by the current edition of 
Robert's Rules of Order.
